Eyelet stitch

I am trying to do the eyelet section of a pattern and can't understand the instructions. It is worked over 4 stitchs and 2 rows for the repeat. Instructions are as follows:

Row 1:

Sl 1, k1 holding it on LH needle, psso, work k1tbl into k st again, sl both sts on RH needle, now with RH needle behind LH needle k1 second st, sl this st on skipped st and then worked skipped st k1.

Row 2:

Purl 4

YOUR ANSWER


Your eyelet pattern seems to be rather complicated for what it does and I had to actually knit it to work out how it should be done.

Here is my interpretation in plain English, hope it works for you.

Pattern Row:

Slip the first stitch onto the RH needle, knit the next stitch and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch. Move the stitch back to the LH needle and knit into the back of the original stitch so that you have two new stitches. Slip it off the LH needle as normal.

Knit into the back of the second stitch on the LH needle. Lift the front of the second stitch over the first and then knit the first stitch.
