the pattern says
Row 1 Purl
row 2 K2, K1*, slip this st back onto left-hand needle, lift the next 8 sts on left hand needle over this st and off the needle, yon twice, knit the first st again, K2*, rep from * to* to end
row 3 K1, * p2tog, drop loop of 2 sts made in previous row and (k1, K1 tbl) into loop , p1*, rep from *to* to last st, k1. do not cast off, break yarn and run thread through stiches draw up in flower shape.
So, can any one explain what the
drop loop of 2 sts made in previous row and (k1, K1 tbl) into loop
actually means in very very plain english for dummies
thank you for the posts above but we are still rather lost.
