Re: decrease in the pattern

The portion of the pattern you have provided doesn't make sense to me either. The general directions say to decrease 1 stitch on each side of the lace cable yet the decrease instructions sound as if you are decreasing twice -- the k2tog from cn which sounds as if it is the last two stitches of your lace cable and the ssk which sounds as if it is the first two stitches immediately following the lace cable.

Why does your pattern have you doing 10 stitches worth of decreases at this point? Is this a pattern you found on the web that you can share the URL?
