I am quite new to knitting and am trying to knit the loopy velez cowl in Debbie Stoller's Stitch n Bitch. However, I don't understand the loop stitch!
The part I don't understand says
*M1 bring yarn to front and back again to make a loop, anchoring it down with thumb; slip M1 onto left needle, k2tog, rep from *
I am knitting continental style. I am unsure: do I make the loop with the right or left needle? and what do I do with it when I slip M1 onto left needle? (So far, I have been making the loop with the right needle and then just k2tog, ignoring the loop, which makes for very very long ... how do you call them? stitches? in the next round. I don't see where the loop should be to tighten. (Do I keep it on the needle???)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
