I’m a new knitter and have been working my way through the basics with the help of, mainly, The Knitter’s Handbook. I have realised as I’ve gone along that I don’t need to know every stitch as likely I’ll never use them and if I do I’ll figure it out at the time, but there is this one Mock Cable (back) and I cannot for the life of me work out how to do it (and I have not seen any other mock cables like this)
This is what it says - take the RH needle in front of the first 2 stitches and knit the 3rd stitch. knit the 4th stitch. Leave all 4 stitches on the LH needle. Knit the 2nd stitch on the LH needle. Knit the 1st stitch.
Slip all 4 stitches off the needle.
So, HOW do I knit into the 3rd stitch (without slipping the others off the needle) and slip all four stitches off - where exactly?
Thanks in advance for any enlightenment on this, I may not need to ever do it but it frustrates me that I can’t figure it out.
