    What does it mean in row 3-6 when it says in 3rd loop?

      Hi Rosie, did you find out what that means? I’m up to row 3 and I’m not quite sure what to do. V. Xx

    So your first two loops are the ones at the top of your work that you can see. The ones that form a kinda of spine and are the ones you normally work in to. The third loop is underneath the top loop that is nearest you. If you pinch the top top loops up you’ll should see the third loop on the side in front of you. Hope that makes sense.
