knit into back of second stitch on left hand needle

Can anyone explain how this is done? From the front between the two stitches with needle in 'purl' position? From the back and under the second stitch (very difficult)? From the back with needle in 'purl' position?

Go behind the first stitch and knit it, though it depends on what you're supposed to do with the first stitch.

You can knit the second stitch as you normally would, or knit it through the back loop. Is it part of a twist? As Suzeeq said, what are you supposed to do with the first stitch?

yes, a twist
Four stitches are involved here: I'm quoting:
"knit into front of 2nd stitch on left-hand needle, then knit first st, slipping both sts off needle at the same time."

"knit into back of 2nd st on left-hand needle, then knit first st in the usual way, slipping both sts off needle at the same time"

My question is about the 3rd stitch. How do you approach the back of this second stitch?
Thanks for your help[/b]

Bring the tip of your needle around behind the first stitch on the left needle and knit into the back loop of the second stitch, inserting the needle from right to left. Then, keeping that loop on the needle, bring it around front and knit into the first stitch as normal.

This makes two sets of twisted stitches. The first set, is a twist to the right.

The second set, is a twist to the left and it's like Ingrid says. Put your needle behind the first stitch and knit into the back loop the second, which twists that stitch, then knit the first one.

Hi,

I am in the process of knitting a face cloth. It has little tiny cables in the pattern.

When I am knittng this stitch K1, P1, Knit in back of 2nd stitch on left hand needle, knit the first stitch on needle, take off both stitches, P1, repeat from *.

when I am putting my needle through the second stitch on left needle, from the back, from right to left, do I loop the working yarn around it or do I wait to use the working yarn when I bring my needle around to the front of the first stitch, then loop the working yarn around, then slip both stitches off?

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ANY HELP ,
sue

Insert the needle into the back leg of the 2nd st, wrap the yarn around it and pull through. Then knit the 1st st as usual, and slip both sts off.

There's not a video here that I know of. How is it looking weird? The sts twist over each other, like a mini cable so they're not going to look like regular sts.
