I have that calendar, but I haven't tried it. Here are the directions in case anyone else can help:
Cast on: 11 st for fingering or sock weight yarn
50-70 st for ribbon or thicker yarn
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: K1, *insert needle into next stitch as if to knit. Place left index finger next to right needle tip, wind yarn around needle and finger clockwise three times and then once around needle tip. Draw all 4 loops through to complete stitch. * Repeat between *s across row to last stitch. K1
Row 3: K1, *knit next 4 stitches together as one stitch, pass first st. over second st. to cast off. * Repeat bet *s across row to end.
I hope this helps you get an answer.
