Ok I am making a scarf for DH and my instructions read
cross 2 over 2 left/purl bg: sl3 to CN, hold in front, k2, [U][B]sl center st from CN back to left hand needle and purl it[/B][I][B]. [/B][/I][/U]K2 from CN.
The underlined part is the one I am having trouble with. Do I slip the stitch over the last one or do I take them both off and put the last one back on? Also if I take them both off and put the back one back on do I hold the stitches in the front or the back of the one I am going to purl? I have knitted a bit of the pattern and have been slipping the middle stitch off the needle and putting the one back on and holding the cable needle stitches in the front but it looks funny and I dont know if I should keep going and it will turn out eventually or try it a different way. So far it doesn’t look right but I have never done a braided cable before.
Someone please help:knitting:
