Hiii, thanks for looking at my thread. <3
Well, anyway, I've never knitted anything before, and I've always been interested in trying to learn to knit or crochet, and have finally gotten around to it. (Using wanting to make something for someone for Christmas my excuse to start, teehee~) So I went to Michael's and bought a "learn to knit: knit a teddy bear" kit. Honestly, I would've rather started with something easier like a scarf or beanie or something, but...well, I won't lie, I was being picky and didn't really like any of the other designs I saw there. xD It says it's got easy to follow instructions, but I'm having some trouble understanding them...I've attached the page of instructions I was on (which is before the actual project, teaching me how to slip knot, cast on, and then this, where I got stuck), and two pictures of what I was doing. One being step 2, and one being step 3, if I got them right, hopefully? Please tell me if they look wrong, since I wasn't exactly sure I would I was doing.
Okay, so, first of all...It says that the left needle should be on top...So, how come in diagram K it's on the bottom? I just ignored that and tried to go on, but maybe that's important and I'm just missing something? Anyway, I tried to continue, and then when I got to step 4, I just had no idea what it meant. I tried a few things, but the diagram didn't help me at all, and when I tried to do step 5, it would always look way off, or just slip back into the original cast on. Can someone please explain this to me better than these instructions did? xD
Thanks in advance. <3
