Step 4: Move the yarn to the other side of the work – not in front of the right needle, but over it! This will pull the single strand stitch with it, turning it into an interesting two strand version. (These 2 strand still counts as 1 stitch.) Continue knitting as pattern instructs.

Step 5: When you’ve returned to the wonky 2-stranded stitch, and are about to pass over it, simply knit those 2 strands together. Continue knitting as pattern instructs. Piece of cake, eh?
