Hello! I want to start the pattern seen here: http://beavercreekfarm.typepad.com/Belle_Starr_Hat.pdf
I've never worked from a chart (on 2nd page) before, but it seems simple enough. One question, though: what do the different facing slashes mean? All the other symbols are explained in the key, but not these. I think it must be some kind of decrease, but not sure...
