    It says above that the first video is going to explain how to sl2-k1-p2sso, but the video actually shows sl1-k2tog-psso. Do you have a video somewhere that actually shows sl2-k1-p2sso? Thanks!!

      Hi Christina – I see what the issue is! The title image on the video has a typo, it says sl1-k2tog-psso. The video itself actually shows the steps / procedure for sl2-k1-p2sso, so if you follow it through, step by step, that’s what you’ll get. Sorry for the confusion!

    When I do a yarn over, does it change the pattern if I do it from front or back yo??

      Yep, you need to move the yarn around your left needle, bringing the yarn to the front betweetn the needles then over the right needle to the back.

    Hello, I have purchased most, if not all patterns from Max and Brodhi’s Wardrobe. I have been searching my library on Ravelry for the pattern Rocky. It does not come up. How do I access the patterns I have purchased from you? Paulette.

    P.S. Enjoy your emails very much. Love following what you do.

    The Bounce Blanket is gorgeous! I could imagine applying the pattern to a shawl. If I am able to make this within a couple years, I can die a happy knitter ;) Awesome work!

    That blanket is beautiful and is now on my Knitting Bucket List. Getting more confident with lacework is one of my goals for 2016, so thank you for the gothic lace tutorial (also beautiful)! I can’t wait to practice! Happy knitting! :)
