This pattern tells me to "Dec 1, k4, k2 tog twice, k4, Dec 1"
You'd think that they'd be consistent and just say "k2 tog, k4, k2 tog twice, k4, k2 tog".
I should stop trying to out think myself... huh??
I get it now. Usually at the beginning of a row, the first dec is a ssk and the last dec is a k2tog, in order to get them to lean in opposite directions. Not the end of the world if you don't, but I don't know why they didn't specify.
