I started on the yoke last night and about 8 rows into the decreases I realized that I was angling them the wrong way. The instructions only specify a k2tog before and after the central purl stitch which gives and uneven look.
Um… not what I was looking for. I think most knitters opted for the version below with the pronounced decrease line. Makes sense since the honeycomb doesn’t really come together in the design.
Just for kicks, I wanted to see what it would look like to angle the decreases the opposite way. The result was really seamless, and would work really well if the honeycomb came together better.
In the end, I opted to go through and drop all version 2 decreases and substitute to match version 1.
