I’m trying to figure out how to do patterns like the one below (it won’t let me link it because this is my first post, boo) but I don’t understand the instructions. I know how to knit and purl, slip stitches and pass them back over, increase stitches, and decrease by knitting/purling together. I don’t understand the instructions below, especially where it says “slip 5 knitwises, [B]draw up long loops and place them on left needle at tip, 5 stitches worked in 5 stitches[/B] (knit 5 together, 1 yarn over, knit 5 together, 1 yarn over, knit 5 together.”
I don’t know what “draw up long loops” means, or what “5 stitches worked in 5 stitches” means, even with the explanation. Can someone please break this down for me?
