I will be
if anyone can help me with this instruction from an old Patons baby book....
The pattern is plain knit and every 5 stitches "Make Knot". The instructions for making the knot say:
"Sl.1, insert needle from the front, under
the leading edge between the first and second stitch on the left needle. Wrap thread to form a loop and pull through. Put needle over
the leading edge and pull thread through to make a second loop. K1, slip the first loop over, then slip second loop over."
Am I right in assuming that they are calling the 'leading thread' the one linking the 1st and 2nd stitches on my left-hand needle? I've done a few rows this way but the 'knot' that I get is a little bump, which looks different from the one in their picture which is more like the letter X. Very frustrating
