Thank you both for getting back to me so quickly!
That sounds much more straightforward now...it's great to have experts on hand to ask for help from!
Ok...i'm off to pull back the last three rows, because i didn't decrease at the front slope from the start (not that i knew what the front slope was...that was probably going to be my next question!)....i thought those bold instructions only applied to the 'on foll 2 alt rows' section! Thank goodness i asked, otherwise baby would have been wearing a wonky cardigan!
Cheers again for your help.
