  1. I have a question about the pattern instructions for the Celestial Cowl…..my question has to do with Row 187: sk1, p2, p2tog, wyif, p3, p2tog, wyif, p3, p2tog, wyif, p3, hs. I’m not exactly sure how to complete this part.
    When I P2Tog and I moving the loop on peg 4 over to peg 5 or am I moving the loop on peg 5 over to peg 4?
    Another concern I have is with the WYIF: am I laying the yarn in front of or behind the empty peg and then purling 3?

    Please clarify these steps for me, thank you
