The Oak Leaf is a fun little introduction to stacked decreases. This technique can be used to create lobe shaped edging, flame stitch motifs, and shaping. You may have seen it in other patterns like Fox Paws which use the wavy stitch in colorwork. Stacked decreases are worked by slipping stitches back to the left needle to work them again.
