I just got myself a cute little book called One Skein Wonders and there's something I don't understand. They describe a Double Decrease like this:
Slip 2 stiches together knitwise ontp the right needle
Knit the next stitch
Slip 2 previously slipped stitches together over the knitted stitch.
The center stitch should lie on top.
I don't understand how the center stitch can lie on top. It seems to me the first stitch would be lying on top.
What am I missing here?
