Okay, so you have two

Okay, so you have two strands going, and one's hanging down one side and the second is hanging down the other side? I might need to see a video on this one. LOL

oh my god...how in the world

oh my god...how in the world do you knit the second row without turning? I would so fuck that up, I know it. LOL

the way i do it is knit w/

the way i do it is knit w/ color a, slide to right (not turning)knit w/ b. purl w/ color a, purl w/ b,
it's super super simple when you do it. and i'd suggest DPNs, not even circs....the connector gets to be a pain in the ass. OH...just remember if you try the patt. out: make sure your ends are tight. like, how you would normally weave in ends?....the first stitch under the color you're working with a;ways comes loose and bags out....just hold that strand in your opposite hand for a couple stitches to make sure it's tight.

did i confuse ya'll?
i'll post pix from my WIPs of this pattern in a lil bit. i'm being lazy right now :D

It took me a bit of thinking

It took me a bit of thinking to figure that out. You're working on dpns, and that second row is knit in a different color. So if I understand it right, you go across the row right to left with one color, then without turning you slide the work to the right side of the needle, and work right to left again with the other color.

correct - then you turn and

correct - then you turn and work a wrongside row in each yarn.

so it is RS - A; RS-B; WS-A; WS-B

MMario - ambiguity is cultivated, it doesn't happen in a vacuum!
