Thanks guys! makes more sense now
but someone brought it to my attention that if i follow the instructions that i end up with 11sts at the end instead of 16sts. any truth to that? im a bit weary to try it myself and figure it out because ive auready had to start over more times then id like to admit, and i want to start it off right this time! They said to knit the dec rows in SKP, not quite sure of the difference that would make in the end product.
I got the instructions from a book.
