The problem I have is that does reversing shaping mean? The folloling five rows are what I did for the right strap:

P to end
BO3, k to end
P to end
BO2, knit to end
P to end


Ohhh... you're right... that sounds better. Wish I would have thought of that

Thank you for any help!

Perhaps you should do the BO's on the purl row so that the yarn is in the correct position to continue working the remain sts. :?

So reverse shaping would be:

Original................................. Reversed
P to end................................ BO 3 sts, p to end
BO3, k to end........................ K to end
P to end................................ BO 3 sts, p to end
BO2, knit to end..................... K to end
P to end................................. BO 3 sts, p to end

It's just an idea :idea: ... I could be wrong though :?
