    Changing from the yellow (front) yarn to the red (back) yarn to work the first motif Drop the front yarn from the index finger and tension it with the middle finger. Using your index finger select the back yarn (the first time
    you do this it will be behind the red yarn on the index finger, subsequently it will be on the middle finger) and pass it over the front yarn to knit the required number of stitches.
