Okay, I would NOT have gotten that one. Since it specified "Sl 1 with yarn in back", I'd have guessed that the "yarn forward" would have meant to bring the yarn to the front between the needles (as if going from knit to purl). Boy would my face have been red...

Ah! But the clue was in the last instruction, wasn't it?:
"pass slipped stitch over 3 stitches just worked" In my translation, you'd only have 2 stitches... and the second one would have been ... very interesting (if it stayed together at all).

This pattern reading stuff is complicated.
