I'm inclined to say you'd start with a knit stitch, but I'm not sure that is what you're asking.
Here is the Pattern I am having problems matching when I start decreasing. On row 4 I decrease the first stich, now should I start from P1 or from *(P1, K1) twice. and Row 5 should I start knitting for *k2? that is what I am so comfused... don't know where to start after I decrease a stich.
