zigzag knotted rib help
hi,
I'm trying to knit an edging for a scarf with this stitch:
Zigzag Knotted Rib
& I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
(it doesn't look like the picture at ALL, what I'm doing.)
the thing that made sense to me was sticking the right needle (right-handed knitting) from the side facing away from me through the back loop of the second stitch so it's pointing toward me, then wyif knitting the second stitch that way, then pulling the yarn between the needles so I can knit the first st wyib.
obviously this is wrong, though.
I also tried contrary to the apparent instructions just knitting the second stich with the first stitch on the needle normally, and then knitting the first, but that didn't work either.
if anyone out there can enlighten me, I'd be eternally grateful!!!

thanks in advance.
