Now, bring the yarn over the front toward you. Now it's one stitch again, right? That's how it SHOULD look.
Thank you, I was driving myself nuts! I could not figure it out and these ladies would not share the secret with me over the phone and could not get out to meet them till next week! Thank you again!
