    >When knitting sweaters (oh, such long-ago memories!) I usually knit the back in stockinette only, no matter what the pattern on the front. I think this would be a good alternate to plain stockinette… thinking, thinking…The 'move A to B and B to A' means to switch the location of the stitches, right? Do you use 2 tools for this? Or do you just let B hang for a moment while moving A?

    >I would use two tools.I wonder if it would work using just one two-prong tool, taking both the stitches off then twisting it and putting the stitches back on.Has anyone tried that?
