Unless I'm dense....
They did not take into account that the decreases make the pattern rows obsolete.
I basically fake it till I make it. I look ahead to where the repete pattern fits and adjust the beggining and end rows as I see best. That may mean to not do a double wrap because its going to get knitted together .
I figure when it gets stiched together it won't show .
I'm very surprised theres not more info available for this pattern .
ESPECIALLY when it graces the cover of her knitted flower book which I bought.
I finished side one and am working on side two. I started to knit it in the round but stopped when I ran into how I was going to handel the decreases.
the problem didn't get any better when I switched to straights.
