need quick help....k2tog tbl?
I know what it means....but the tbl part I am having trouble envisioning. How do I do that? Do I come in at the top stitch and go down through the back like purling except have the yarn behind, or do I go behind the work and insert the needle and go at it?

I have been doing it the first way, and it is really difficult and taking forever.

Thanks!

No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.

Hi YarnMommy,
I would just ignore the front of the work entirely & knit the part of the loop on the back side of the needle. I hope that helps!

Would it look terribly different if I just k2tog the regular way? It seems to me you are still dragging it through the same way.


I'm still unclear as to how to stick the needle in to start the stitch.

Oh, and I am starting this http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTcozy.html .

I am terrible at explaining things, but I'll try. When I knit 2 together normally, I insert the right hand needle in front, starting with the farthest left of the two stitches and continuing through the stitch on the right...knitting them together. When I knit two together through the back loop, I would start in back and insert my right hand needle starting through the right stitch & continuing through the left stitch & then knit them together. It's one of those things that sounds so much harder than it is. I wish I could explain it better.

The pattern looks beautiful, by the way!

I've got to go to bed and get some sleep. I won't be at all surprised if when I wake up & check the messages here I will find out that I've been doing this stitch wrong for years... and if that's the case, I'm sorry if I led you astray!

Whew. I'm glad that my explanation made sense and I'm also glad that when I watched the video I discovered that I do it the right way afterall.
