Candy Stripers from SNB Nation


I'm starting my first felting project! Yay! I'm making the messenger bag/candy stripers bag from Stitch N Bitch Nation (pg. 150)

Well, I want to start it...I'm having some trouble with the horizontal herringbone stitch.

For your reference:

Row 1: K1, *sl 1, K1, raise sl st with left-handed needle but do not drop it, k into back of raised st, drop from needle; rep from * to last st, K1.

Row 2: *P2tog, then purl first st again, slipping both sts off needle tog; rep from * to end.

I can't for the life of me figure out what's being accomplished here...I'm not sure how the raising of the slip stitch is supposed to happen here....or how to knit into the back of it....I'm just messed up....

And if it's possible, I'm more confused about row on earth to I purl into the first stitch again after purling the first 2 together?

I hope someone....or many someones....can help me out here....I'm just itching to figure this out, and I just started spring break, so I want to try to finish this before next Monday....while I have time

Thanks in advance!!!
