playing with versions of ssk
4 different kinds of left-leaning decreases. I did a small swatch, as you can see--and I mirrored them with straight-up k2togs on the right hand side. I also increased one stitch at each end of all decrease rows, so that the swatch didn't become too wonky. From the bottom up, you can see that the size gets progressively smaller--I will be trying to work the stitches as the top one, though I really wish there were a way it could be even better. I need o play around a bit with my purling tension, too, I think, to help this even more.
