EDIT: Answer is below.
I’m on the Purl side of stockinette and the 2 step direction given for M1 in this pattern says:
[B]Them: [/B]M1- step 1: [COLOR=black]Knit[/COLOR] [COLOR=red]into the [COLOR=black]back[/COLOR] of the stitch[/COLOR] in the [COLOR=black]row below[/COLOR] the 1st stitch on the needle.
[B]Me[/B]: Would that be the stitch below on the left needle? I’m not knitting through the center of the stitch below? So [COLOR=black]to[/COLOR] catch the back loop [COLOR=black]to[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]knit[/COLOR] it I come at it from behind the work? Help… explain? All the stitches facing me are purls.
[B]THEM:[/B] m1- step 2. [COLOR=black]Knit[/COLOR] into the front of the 1st stitch on the left needle.
[B]Me:[/B] Um, isn’t that the way I normally would [COLOR=black]knit[/COLOR] the next stitch on the left needle? Are they trying [COLOR=black]to[/COLOR] confuse me?
