Vandyke stitch vi (modified)

This is a modified version of Vandyke stitch vi from Mon Tricot. The modifications accomplish three things: - the pattern is no longer off-center - the bunny ears decrease means that the yo in row 1 is centered properly without asymmetrical decreases being used in the chevron - the kfb in row 9 with a compensating decrease in row 11 is gone; I couldn’t figure out why that was supposed to be there and it just looked messy to me.

Shown with a cast-on count of 22 stitches.
