Help with an abbreviation please
I have only recently started knitting and have decided to try a baby blanket. The pattern seems relatively easy, but I still have a few questions. The most difficult one for me is how to do this stitch:
MK = P2tog without slipping sts off needle, then K2tog over same sts.
How in the world do I do that? I understand P2tog and K2tog, but don't understand the directions. I would really appreciate any help. Thanks!

I just did it on my test swatch...It's just as it sounds...

P2tog ... do not remove the sts from left needle.
Bring the yarn to the back to prepare to knit.
Now knit the same 2 sts together.

It's really easy ... don't over-analyze ...

I'm curious though, is this pattern online?

There are lots of patterns that require you to K or P several sts into ONE st....bobbles are one example. It sounds weird when you read it, but it really does work. Just DO it, and you will see.

Thanks guys. I'm going to give it a try tonight (wish me luck)!

Oh, the pattern was not online, but on the back of my ball of yarn.
