What am I doing wrong?
I have been trying to knit this horse finger puppet. After I get past the stockinette stitch for the first 12 rows, all goes wrong. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. This is the part that gets me....the part that says form the nose. I keep getting holes from the slip stitches and it looks nothing like the picture at the end. Am I not slipping the stitch correctly or am I missing a step?
This is the webpage if it helps any.
Make the Horse

With brown yarn, cast on 15 stitches. Work 12 rows in stockinette stitch.

Form the Nose
Beginning on right side of work, knit 10, [turn work, slip 1, purl 4, turn, slip 1, knit 4] 3 times. Knit 5. Work 5 more rows in stockinette stitch.
please help! THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Slipping a st is just moving it from one needle to another; it will be elongated, but shouldn't leave a hole.
