Step 5. Now, I start decreasing--from the center bead of each group of five, I pick up three beads and go through the next center bead--all around.


See how the decrease is starting to pull the edge of the work inwards? This is the finished round--as usual, I pick up the last three beads, go through the originating bead of the round, and then through the first two beads of the first "add three' group.


On this round, I'm only adding one bead, then going through the center bead of the group of three of the previous round. This really tightens the work down--this is the point where I make sure I've got the cab inside the work. The picture shows the work in progress with the underside of the cab showing. :-)


There's another method on Red Ventling's page.
