    I love this stitch! It would probably make a nice scarf, even with the bias tendency. Very pretty color combo, too! Thanks for sharing!

    I’m trying to figure out how to knit this stitch. As far as I can see in the book, the pattern involves knitting two stitches together, but that can’t be right because there’s no place where stitches are added to compensate. When you knit the loop through the stitch in the row below “together with the slipped stitch,” are you knitting the two stitches together? And if so, do you then knit the stitch above the loop through the stitch in the row below? But the pattern just says k1 . . . Any advice you can give me would be much appreciated.
