    I don’t understand what I’m supposed to do in round 2 in the dogwood blanket. Do I P3tog on each needle? If so, there will only be 1 st left on each one. Please clarify.

      Hi Mary – nope, no p3togs in round 2. You are just knitting your knits and purling your purls. The note is that you are purling the sts that were p3tog in the previous round when that comes up.
