Sue, Oh my. I never tired it out, it just seemed logical. Hmm, I just tried it and can't see that it made a big mess.
I don't know if it looks really good, but not really bad either. I don't think there is ever a reason to one isolated k1b or in this case k1b, k1b and have it do anything that you'd even notice. But I did it over about 10 rows doing k2b every over row on top of each other and it may be a little weird, but not a mess.
I don't know what they want her to do to be honest.
