She's mixed them up!
If you look in the increases list and click on the KLL, she's knitting into the right loop, and vice versa! Why i9s that? Did Amy get mixed up? :??

From what the directions say, she's doing it correctly. She picked up the left loop of that stitch and then knit into the back of it, which technically is what was the right loop of the stitch. It's no longer the right loop of the stitch, because it's now the back loop of the stitch she picked up.

:shock: :??

okay i am erasing that from my mind now cuz it makes my head hurt! ;)

Think of it this way. You knit a stitch. When you turn the needles over, it's now a purl, right? It's the same with this. Once the stitch is picked up by the left loop, it becomes something else--the stitch that you're knitting into.

If you're confused, I don't blame you. This is how my mind works. It explains a lot! :rofling:
