Ok so there's this pattern, for the Inga Hat, but in any case, I've just started and it says that to knit the braid around the edge you do this:

Braid (worked over rows 1, 2, and 3 of
Row 1: k 1 in MC, k 1 in CC1
Row 2: bring yarns to front of work, *p 1 in
     MC, cross strand of CC1 over strand just
     worked, p 1 in CC1, cross MC over CC* ;
     Repeat from * to * across row.
Row 3: Starting with MC, work as for Row 
      2, but cross strand just worked UNDER 
      strand to be worked.

Ok...what is with the instructions for row three? If I cross the strand I just worked under the strand to be worked, isn't that exactly the same as crossing the strand TO be worked OVER the strand that I've just worked? I don't get it! I have no idea how these directions aren't just the same thing phrased differently! Am I looping the "strand just worked" around the strand to be worked and doubling it back? HALP.

They are different - R 2 says to cross the strand over while row 3 says to cross it under. This way the colors will be stranded across the WS.
