I am having trouble with Row 4 of the Daintier Chevron. I never end up with the correct number of stitches. Could it be I'm doing the p2tog-b wrong. This seems like a decrease stitch..or is it.
Thanks for any help.

I'm away from home so I don't have my books or notes, but yes, the p2tog-b is a single decrease. I'll be home Monday night and will investigate then.
