Special stitches

sl-3yo: slip the 3 yarn over sts on to right needle so that they unravel into a big loop.

sl-loop: slip the big loop st on to right needle.

cross-loop: slip the 1st loop st out of left needle and leave in front of work, slip next 3 sts on to right needle, slip the 2nd loop st out of left needle and leave in front of work. Now, insert left needle into 1st slipped loop st to move it back to left needle, then move back the 3 sts from right needle on to left needle, and then insert left needle into 2nd slipped loop st to move it back to left needle. This makes the cross.
