Come to think about it, when I've been decreasing that way lately, I've been knitting down a sleeve in the round. To it would be the opposite of what you've been doing! Duh. Sorry if this caused any confusion.

K2 tog gives you a right-slanting dec

ssk gives you a left-slanting dec

I guess you have to go with looks best. I would think on a ragland shaping that you would want a left slanting dec on the right side of the seam and a right slanting dec on the left side of the seam. So from the top down you would do the opposite of what you are doing now?

As I'm typing this I see that you posted about the little hole. I just looked at my sleeves and there are no holes. Its in Dalegarn Falk--dk wool, if that makes a difference.
