You are most welcome, I'm sure. It's a stitch I did years ago and liked - but haven't seen it since.
Here's a thought: since this lovely bubble is done over 2 knitted sts - why not work a second bubble on the opposite side?? You know, where the purls are knitted?
Just hope that you don't get ... [yes, she's going to say it! Hold your ears, folks!!] Double Bubble Trouble!
Enjoy. Again, I'm glad to have helped.
PS - If taking the first stitch and passing it over the next 2 is the wrong direction, then maybe you could try for the crossover row: where you have 2 sts and the middle knitted yarn-over, knit all 3 of the stitches, then put those 3 right back on the left-hand needle and pass the THIRD stitch, the one on the left edge of the k3 group, over the other two. This is a bit more tedious, but then you would get the crossover/pass st. over going in the other direction.
But I am very happy to help.
Knitting really truly IS far more than just stitches and needles, isn't it?
