I need help identifying this stitch so I can find it on youtube, what I did find doesn’t look like what the pattern describes. I’ve practised on a test piece and it decreased 1 every time I did the stitch. Its for a 1940s Balaclava (open face type), I’m on the last stage for around the face part.
(the 1st round: 1st needle: rib to last 2 sts, k2tog, 2nd needle: rib. 3rd needle: k2tog through backs, rib to end)
what I’m stuck on, and I don’t want to risk till I’m sure I know what I’m doing:
2nd Round: As 1st round, but twist each ‘‘knit’’ rib as follows: Insert needle through first stitch purlwise, then draw the 2nd stitch through the first stitch knitwise, knit it and slip off needle, then knit the 1st stitch
Am I basically pulling the the stitches through the other, then knitting each of them? I think I get it, does it have a name? I’m not sure where I’m supposed to do it as the 1st round.
