Hello, can you please tell me, when knitting number 2 and 4 of the 'texture stitch', in this pattern, do I move the yarn to the front of my work (which I take to be the right side, which is facing me!), slip purlwise, then move the yarn to the back of my work (which I take to be the wrong side of my work, which is facing outwards), then knit a stitch, etc? If I leave the yarn at the front, it produces a yarn over, which I don't believe is what is part of this pattern.

When I leave the yarn at the back of my work it does not produce the same pattern as shown in the Jane Austin Knits (2014) magazine.

I'm wondering if there is a correction to this pattern, or if I'm just reading/doing it wrong...thank you for your assistance here...I couldn't find a spot when I could look for corrections to patterns.

Yours truly, Carol Farndon
