All right. k2tog is a common decrease. k3tog is all right, I guess. But k7tog? It has its own special abbreviation section, which tells you to slip the next seven stitches onto a crochet needle and to then pull the yarn through. It's part of the leafy pattern I'm using to create a scarf for my aunt. And it actually looks really cool...like a little dollop (not of Daisy's!). I haven't even completed the pattern once yet... (the pattern doesn't lend itself to study-knitting all too well, except on the wrong side rows) but it uses a bunch of new stitches, which I love! Keeps it interesting.
