Okay, notes in hand now. I was close on the CO but not quite.

CO a multiple of 10 sts + 1. It's knit lengthwise, so the CO will determine your finished length.


k one row. This is actually optional, but Wendy did it that way, so I did too.

Then the fun starts.

all RS rows:
k2tog, k3, m1, *k1,m1,k3,dbl dec,k3,m1*, rep from * to * until 6 sts remain, k1, m1, k3, ssk (and if you happened to have any sts left over, just knit 'em. )

The double decrease I used was sl2tog, k1, p2sso, but you can use another method if you'd rather.

For the other WS rows, I knit one row after each color change and purled the others. The knit rows are optional, but they help minimize curling and add a garter ridge at intervals that adds some interest. (Mostly I did it that way 'cos that's how Wendy did it.)

I did the BO on the WS... also because that's how Wendy did it.

Everything except the pattern rows is pretty much a free-for-all. If you want to know how I did it, I'll be happy to share.
