Loop Stitch or Fur stitch
I have just learned how to knit and I am doing my second project. THe pattern is in a magazine "LOve of Knitting" It is called the Loop rug. THe stitch used to make this loop is called the Loop stitch, but they also say it is called a fur stitch. Can anyone tell me how to do this. I have tried with the instructions and it says to K1,K1 but leave the sts on the left needle, then bring yarn under and around the left thumb to make the llop, then, rknit this sts again slipping the stitch off the needle.Do a YO and pass the 2 sts just worked over the loopthis completes the ML (loop made). THen tug the loop to tighten. I feel like I have tried everything I know. Does the YO thread once around the right needle stay on the needle as I pass the 2 sts over it? Is this the loop? I am so confused. Does anyone out there know how to do the Loop or Fur stitch? THanks to anyone that can help me.

There's a video on the Advanced Techniques page under Decorative stitches for a Loop stitch. I don't know if it's the same as on your pattern.
