How do you knit the rope stitch over 2 stitches? Called for in an afghan pattern. Can't figure it out. It says to sk first stitch and knit in front loop of second stitch and then knit the skipped stitch and slip both stitches off the needle.
Can't get it look like anything. Help!!

This may be clearer:

Definition from another pattern:
Rope Stitch (RS): sk (skip) stitch, k next st, leave on left needle, k the sk (skip) st. Drop both sts from left needle
Meaning:
Skipping the first stitch on the left needle, Knit into the second stitch on the left needle, leave it there, then knit into the first stitch on the left needle and let both the 1st and 2nd stitches drop off the left needle.

Pattern using that stitch.

That stitch is also called mock cable or twisted cable, easy to do and adds a touch of whimsy to any knitted article. To see an explanation of knitting stitches to to New Stitch a Day and he will show you how to do each one.

This stitch is also great to use on the leg part of socks - gives nice neat columns of mock cables in tiny stitches that make it look like you really worked magic on the socks!
