Things to Keep in Mind

Easy knitting versus accuracy.

When knitting diagonals, we use the magic formula (Diophantine Calculation) to determine the shaping instructions.

For example. Decrease 1 stitch every 3 rows, 1 stitch every 2 rows.

Variations on these instructions can make a big difference in the shape of your diagonal shaping.
