to last st, p1.
Rep rows 1-4 for Texture Stitch

Thanks SO much!

What it looks like is that you’re going to purl the next 2 stitches together, but don’t slide them off the needle when you’re done.

Then, bring the yarn to the back between the needle and knit the same two stitches together, and then let them slide off the tip as they would for any stitch.

You’re not dropping the new sts you’ve made off the needles, but the ones you’ve knit into. Just like when you let the old stitch off the left needle in regular knitting.

Thank you so much! I appreciate your help!
