Very Pretty Vandyke Border

From the Project Gutenberg version of Exercises in Knitting by Cornelia Mee.

Errata noted:

  • Row 10, missing the first knit 1 (between the stitches worked into the double yarnovers).

I'm not sure why there are slipped stitches at the starts of rows 2 and 6 but not at the starts of any other WS rows. I suspect they could be worked as plain knit stitches quite nicely.

Shown with a cast-on count of 10 stitches.
