Ingrid, THANK YOU
This book has been around awhile, it seemed like if there was a problem with the pattern it would be on the net *somewhere.* It didn't even dawn on me that it was side-to-side,
Yay, now I can get started as soon as the yarn gets here! And yes, I should have trusted the pattern, if I had just started knitting it would have become obvious as I went along :rofling: .
