After you knit the stitch, bring the yarn to the front of your work between the needles, not over it, then purl into the same stitch and the next stitch.

How far have you gone? Sometimes it takes several rows till it all styles in. If you can post a pic it would help. There is a link in my sig for appropriate sizes and how-to.

bow madness
i'm trying to complete this bow:
http://www.thesweatshopoflove.com/bl...-bow-headband/

i'm trying to complete the deep textured bow pattern. when i get to the bow it states to measure 6 inches back from working needle, and pick up 10 sts. then to hold these two needles together and knit 1 st from each. so i literally hold the needles together and knit 1 st from each to get a base started for the remainder of the pattern??

Yep, that's right. That will 'fold' it so it makes one of the loops on the bow.

Kolloft, I merged your two threads. It just makes it easier for us (and you!) if the same topic questions are in the same thread.
