Thanks for the quick response! When I read through the special stitches it says:
T2R - K next 2 stitches together, leaving stitches on needle, K 1st stitch again, Sl stitches off needle
question: what stitches are left on what needle - the 2 knitted together stay on the left needle?
then, do you knit the first of the 2 stitches again that was just knitted together?
T2L: K through back loop into 2nd ston left needle and leave st on needle, k2tog through back loops, Sl both st from needle
question: so the back loop means knit into the back of the second stitch? then leave stitch on which needle?
I've tried this multiple times and each time I end up with a knot...
