Can't get this right!???
"Double Knit Bears" - Pattern from Free-Kintting-Pattern.com
For 3 days I've been trying and retrying to make this bear and I keep getting stuck at the same place. I haven't been able to find a video to help or any instruction that helps me out with my problem...hopefully someone here can. I'm sure this is simple once you know how to do it but I am not there yet.
I'm working up from the feet and have gotten to the Nose where the "WTS" technique comes to play. This is all double knit to this point on 2 needles, having just finished a Slip and Knit around once and insuring that the sides are not joined anywhere.
Now I'm to join nose color (NC), Sl1, knit-slip across 1 row, turn.
Wiht yarn to front, Sl 2, (p1,sl1) across to last NC stitch, Yarn to back, sl st temporarily to right needle, bring yarn to front, sl st back to left needle, turn
- With yarn to back, sl1, knit-slip across until 2 NC sts on left needle, wrap st, turn.
- Purl-slip until 2NC sts left, wrap st, turn.
- Knit-slip until 3NC sts left, wrap st, turn.
- Purl-slip until 3 NC sts left, wrap st, turn.
Continue in this manner, working to one more st from end each turn until you are at the center, then reverse the process working to one less st from end each turn until, on last row, you work across all NC sts on needle. Cut NC yarn.
Pick up Main color and return to basic knit-slip pattern working all sts, front and back, for 2 rows.
At this point I check my work and always find that I have closed up the sides with the wraps. I am only working the Nose stitches and slipping the alternate (Main) stitches which are the wrap stitches but this is always where the seam happens.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks for any help!
