I don’t know about you, but I have an extreme dislike for slipping then passing slipped stitches over the top of knit stitches. It’s cumbersome, and never looks “right” to me. I prefer knitting multiples together. With this in mind, after I finished the swatch as the pattern stated using SSKs and sl1k2psso manipulations, I reworked it, and knit a second sample using k2tog and k3tog. I had to move a yarn over to make things line up properly, but I’m very happy with the results. The stitches lean the opposite direction, but I don’t have a problem with that. It was easier to knit this way, faster, and even after blocking the stitches lie better.
The swatch on top is my version, the swatch on the bottom is BW’s version.
I hope you don’t mind, but I also wanted to share this picture. As you can see, I had a photographic assistant…
