Okay, now I see where I got confused. I do it the way you and Amy do, poking the needle through the middle of the stitch below and pulling the new stitch through. I now realize that when you knit it that way, the net effect is the same as if you lifted just the left loop from the stitch below (as in KLL), and knit it together with the top stitch, which is what Ingrid was saying to do. When you knit through middle of the stitch, it's like you're grabbing both stitches at once. (All I could think was, "but when I do it, I don't touch the top stitch at all." But I actually do
knit into it -- I just didn't realize it.) Anyway, my bad.
Sorry, Ingrid. I misunderstood what you were saying.
