    I have tried knitting Mister Mouse but on the tail what does I-cord mean? Also on the ears what does wrap and turn mean? Ihave tried wrapping the wool to the back and turning but how do you knit 2tog across a gap? If I knit the 2sts together after the gap I run out of stitches on row7. I am sorry but living in England I have never heard of these expresstions.
