THANKS all...! I didn't think about googeling that term since I generally come to the knittinghelp web site first with a question, especially since there is less chance of getting confused with tons of links perhaps unrelated to what I am looking for. ;-)
I don't know about you...but when I search for things with basic terms...I end up here and there and 2 hours later...I still am not sure...but I have a couple of new projects that I must have. LOL!
I looked at the link and I did find a "backward" loop CO in one of my books...but it said it was it was the most useless of CO's. haha!
Well back to the needles to finish up my ear flap hat...and on to my NEW pattern and new method of CO. Hopefully it will work...worse that will happen is I learn whether or not I like the results.
