25 July 2012: Version 2.0
The written instructions for Crown Shaping have been edited for clarity. The 3-row shaping sequence was re-written as a 6-row shaping sequence. The updated shaping instructions read as follows:
Round 1 (Decrease Round 1; Marker Placement): *Knit 2 together (hereafter referred to as k2tog), yarn over, k2tog, knit 8, Slip Slip Knit (hereafter referred to as SSK), yarn over, SSK, place marker; repeat from * to the end of round (omitting final marker placement, as beginning-of-round marker is already on needle). Upon completion of this round, you will have placed 6 markers and decreased 12 stitches total; 84 stitches remain after first instance of this round is worked.
Rounds 2 & 3: Knit all stitches in round.
Round 4 (Decrease Round): *K2tog, yarn over, k2tog, knit until 4 stitches remain before next marker, SSK, yarn over, SSK, slip marker; repeat from * to the end of round. 12 stitches decreased.
Rounds 5 & 6: Knit all stitches in round.
Repeat Rounds 4-6 three more times, slipping the markers when you encounter them and changing to DPNs when necessary.
Upon completion of this section, you will have decreased a total of 60 stitches (12 stitches per every Decrease Round); 36 stitches remain on your needle.
