remove from needle together?
I'm working on my sweater (http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=6383) and the pattern has the following stitch definitions:

C2R = Knit into front loop of 2nd stitch on left-hand needle, then knit 1st stitch, slipping both stitches off needle together.

C2L = Knit through back loop of 2nd stitch on left-hand needle (behind 1st stitch), then knit 1st stitch, slipping both stitches off needle together.

To me, it sounds like you're working a cable without a cable needle. However, the videos I've watched and the pattern's instructions don't seem to match. The videos show slipping the first stitch off the left needle, slipping the second stitch onto the right needle, putting the first stitch back on the left needle then slipping the first stitch on the right needle back on to the left one. The pattern definition seems to have you working both stitches while they are on the left needle without slipping and moving them. The phrase ”slipping both stitches off the needle together" is throwing me, too.

What do I do?

I think the C means cross, which is also twisted stitches. Try this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLF44j6AfWk

Yes, this is like a mini cable or Twist stitch - RT or LT. The 'slipping both sts off the needle together' refers to the old stitches after you're done knitting them. It just like when you're done knitting a stitch, the old one drops/slips off the left needle.

You can do these the way the pattern directs or you can do them as mini-cables by changing the stitch position. Either will work and give you the look that you want. It's actually faster to work them according to the pattern (less fiddley) once you figure out how-to. Give it a try on the needles and see if you can get it to work.

I know it's been awhile since this question was asked, but I wanted to share a video I made, which shows how to do a T2R, which is exactly the same as Bernat's C2R

Thank you, Sandy. I do love your videos. You come through as "lets get down to business and see how it's done" but not brusque or too short, and your wonderful personality shines through. Do you have a video for T2L? I've been referring people to the New Stitch a Day videos but I much much much prefer yours! I'm saving the link to this thread to my blog thread for future reference, maybe you could give us a link directly to the video?

I'm glad you like my simple videos!

Here's the link to the one I just posted:

I haven't made a video for T2L. But, when I do, I'll let you know.
