I am trying to start "My So-Called Scarf," and I've realized that I have no idea how to knit through the back loops at all. What does that mean?
I am also confused by the pattern in general - it says to s1, k1, psso but before dropping the slipped stitch off the left needle, knit into the back of it. If I knit into the back of the stitch before I slip it, isn't that just a knit stitch? I figured this might be confused because I knit Continental, but if I change "left" to "right" needle, then these instructions have me knitting with the left needle - is that right?
I figure I am missing something obvious, but any assistance would be much appreciated. TIA!
