The people have spoken & the first delivery of Koolaid has arrived.

TOP: Watermelon Cherry, Mango, Pina Pineapple, Orange
BOTTOM: Lemon Ice, Tropical Punch, Arctic Green Apple

I'm not 100% sure what all the colours will turn out like so I'm going to have a bit of a play on the weekend, I'll post the results next week.

The Rebecca Cardi sleeves are D.O.N.E.
They prooved to be a bit of a lesson in left slanting decreases.
I am looking for one that exactly mirrors K2tog, I started out with SSK, or actually K2tog tbl, I thought they were the same beast but they are different - who knew!

K2tog tbl - stitches appear to zig zag

Then I switched to K1, Sl1, PSSO which is much better but still not exactly right.

sl1, k1, PSSO - left leg is too pronounced & long

I'm hoping that blocking will even everything out but does anyone know of a better left slanting decrease?
Oh, taunting us with tiny pictures of decreaes instead of a whole sleeve!! I remember reading a whole essay of this somewhere, I will have a google!!!
I am with you wanting left slanting decreases to look like the K2tog ones! Will have so see if you find a good one! You will let us know I hope! lol

I always thought ssk was as close as you could get to K2tog but there may be another solution out there.
You might want to check out this post from the Sunrise Circle Jacket knitalong. The poster has done a reasonably extensive experiment on the different left-slanting decrease techniques.
