Like the neat little thing branching out on top of the thicker cable above. Its a k2tog but then, leaving both on the left needle, you knit the first stitch by itself before then slipping them both off.
Of course that first repeat is always the hardest. Before the pattern is established, I'm blindly following the chart, hoping for the best because there's nothing I can recognize that might allow a visible check of the work. Trying each of the 18 different stitch treatments, looking back and forth between charts and legend, made each row take quite a while.
So since tonight the calendar is clear, you know what I plan to be doing! Thanks for dropping by!
