This pattern accompanies the Skill Building article in this issue which discusses double decreases worked on both the RS and WS of the work. After looking through many stitch dictionaries, I found the perfect stitch pattern to demonstrate these techniques. Lace patterns often require double decreases but these are generally worked only on the RS. The “Daintier Chevron” pattern in Barbara Walker’s A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns has the decreases worked on both the RS and WS. It produces a very lacy fabric where even the WS is interesting.

The two double decreases most used in lace are the CDD and s1 k2tog psso. Since I planned to use two colors worked on either side of a provisional cast on, I thought it would be interesting to use CDD on one side and s1 k2tog psso decreases on the other. .
