HERE'S WHAT I WROTE IN THE PATTERN CENTRAL FORUM. I TOTALY NEED HELP!

I've been all over this forum! I am attempting to make a rabbit from a pattern in "Special Knits" by Debbie Bliss. I am stuck on the "gusset". If you have made this, or know what I need help w/please respond! If I sound desperate....it's because I am!

At first, I had problems decreasing on each end like the pattern called:

c/o 22
Knit in st st 6 rows
Continue in st st and decrease each end for the next 8 rows - 6 sts
Pick up and knit 42 st on the shape edge of the gusset

This entire section above has me going grazy. I don't know which dec st to use for the knit side and the purl side. Further more, which one do I use on the left and right?!

I made 2 attempts at the gusset, (slanting edge looks aweful!) and I stopped at "pick up 42 st...." because I didn't even see if there were 42 stitches on the gusset to even p/u! What am I doing wrong?!
