2/2 methof NEW

Hi there,

the 2/2 method may be ( when you are wrapping the pegs)referring to knit 2 loops over 2 loops - (like 4 wrapped loops, instead of 2.) This is often (more loops), a way to get a thicker and closer knit.
But the, it could also refer to ribbing, which is generally a few rows of 2 knit 2 purl, which is used for edgings on hats and sleeves (think of the elastic-y ribbing at the end of sweater sleeves.) It is usually done around the edges of hats, also - (maybe 7 - 10 rows. It makes things "huggier"
