R2: yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo k6
R3: k
R4: yo, sl1-k2tog-psso, yo, k1, slip next 3 stitches to dpn and hold 3 in back; k3, then k3 from dpn; k1
R5: k
R6: yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k6
R7: k
R8: yo, sl1-k2tog-psso, yo, k8

If anyone has any ideas on how best to decrease this I would appreciate the help because I'm going craaaazzzzyy!
Ok your doing a slant decrease it looks like, I am not sure about the yarn over at the beginning of row 2 but your going to slip slip and knit row 4 your going to slide 1 and knit 2 together-and pass slip stitch

Hopefully someone with a lot more experience will come on and tell you what to do I am not sure with the sl-K2tog-Psso if they want you to slide one over knit 2tog then go back and pass the if stitch back? Its a tricky decrease.
