RE: knitting pattern I am having trouble understanding the following knitting patetern. K2tog(fwd)twice. Does it mean knit 2 together, then yarn over twice before the next stitch. Thanks Lily B

RE: knitting pattern

Yes, it does. You knit the two stitches together, then wind your yarn twice around the right hand needle before you do the sl1, k1, PSSO part.

RE: knitting pattern

I have a similar problem, but it is worded differently:
Sl1.K1. psso. (yfwd) twice. K2tog. Then the next row says to (K1. P1) into double rfwd. I'm confused. It also mentions that yfwd twice counts as 2 sts.
