  1. Love it!

  2. Hi! Love the pattern and trying it for myself… having probs with the stitch count, though. I posted my question here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=85262
    Basically, I end up with a different number on the first decrease row and then get confused… can you help me out?

  3. We were wondering what the gauge is for this pattern? How many stitches to the inch?
