Description from MagKnits:
“This pattern uses a technique known as short row knitting. It is so called because you do not knit the full number of stitches on each row, instead you stop and turn at a set point part way through your row. This makes the row a "short" row as it is never completed. <p>The numbers in brackets at the end of each pattern row indicate how many stitches you are working on, NOT the complete number of stitches on your needles. The pattern looks rather complicated in written form. Don’t let that put you off! When you have the work in front of you, and have completed a few rows you will be able to recognize where the next decrease will come almost automatically. So, as you get familiar with the pattern it is likely you will no longer need to follow the instructions at all and will just be able to see where to place your next decrease. If you prefer, you can substitute the SSK decrease with a Slip one, Knit one, pass slipped stitch over. The SSK is preferable as it forms a tighter and neater decrease.”
