see chart below with explanation of stitches. The M in the pattern has a ( ) in the explanation. Can you please explain what this means.
These are alternative ways of doing the double decrease. You can either sl1, k2tog, psso or you can sl2, k1 pass 2 slipped sts over. Both will decrease 2 sts. I like the first method but try out both and see which you prefer.
Thanks so much.
