Decreases?? Which are decreases??

I think I'm ok up to row 10 and then it all goes wrong from there :( Can someone take me slowly through these rows (well 11 and 13)...maybe I'll see what I'm doing wrong then!

Row 11: (K, YO, K), P2, K4,(Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K4, P2, (K, YO, K)
Row 12: P3, K2, P9, K2, P3
Row 13: K1, (K, YO, K), K1, P2, K3,(Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K3, P2, K1, (K, YO, K), K1




Anyone?

Thank you, Conti & Cook!

It's on my list of to-do projects... we'll see where it falls soon! I may bump it up since it's been unseasonably cool here and I'm not sure if I'll want to do it in 90 degree weather!

O.k., you guys have me hooked. Now to check my stash and see if I have enough yarn around. Any recommendations on what kind of yarn would NOT work? I know I have a lot of worsted around somewhere...

Worsted works great ... you may want to expriment with needle size to get the look you want. Or check out knitting two strands together . I don't think anything very fuzzy would be good.

I am using KP Main Line - worsted - size 10, it makes a "looser" fabric but the flames still show, and poof, and shape. I LOVE the look of the bulky wool ... but I want to use in it in Florida ... well in air conditioned restaurants anyway and for travel.

Since it starts with one flame and builds ... which I AM going to master this weekend ... you don't have to worry about it being too small because of gauge.

I myself wondered how this might look with worsted weight yarn. The gauge won't be the same of course as listed in the pattern, and you'd have to play around with needle size, and it wouldn't work up as quickly, but it might work up just fine.

O.k., I've tried this three times now....how on earth do you start this thing??? You have one cast on stitch...you knit it, and yarn over...how do you then knit into that same stitch?

Thanks cookwoim (private joke)

Ok, I think I'm getting way intimidated by all the posts and corrections and stuff. Think I'll work on my little bolero thingy and maybe I'll try a sample of this pattern with waste yarn first.... whew. It's so beautiful though.
Love the lily picture!

I might have done it! I knit the stitch, didn't pull it off, yarned over, then knit in the stitch that wasn't slipped off to get a total of three stitches on the needle. Is that it?
