OMG how silly of me not to think of using a lifeline. That's the perfect solution. Thank you (you're a genius)!

I actually came across that site yesterday, and I found decreasing in brioche stitch, but it also said somewhere on the website that fisherman's rib and brioche stitch were in the same family of stitches, but not exactly alike. Can I use the decrease that they suggested for brioche stitch?

Again, thanks a ton!
