I am knitting the most stunning blanket found in the book “Cover Up with Nicky Epstein.” If I ever finish, it will be a masterpiece. The pattern is called “Trees Breeze” and the part I am stuck on is on page 120.
Anyway, I am beginning what appear to be the leaves for the flowers. The instructions read:
P8 *insert tip of right needle front to back into the fabric at right of twisted st of row 1, pull up a long, loose loop, k1, pass loop over k st, p3, k1 tbl, pull up another loop at left of same st of row 1, k1, pass loop over k st, p3; rep from * to last 5 sts, p5.
I am really not understanding where to place my needle, how yarn should be facing, if this is a k or p stitch, how to make and place those loops.
Once again, thank you for your assistance.
