Hello. I'm new to the forum, but not the site.
I'm making the baby raglan sweater from the Debbie Bliss Baby Knits Book. I'm using the yarn for the pattern (Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran) & size 8 needles. For the sleeves, starting on the 7th row (after casting on), and for every fourth knit row after that, you're supposed to:
k3, m1, k to the last 3, m1, k3
Easy enough, eh?
I've been following the video for the M1F. It appears that I'm doing it correctly (lifting the bar between the stitches with the tip of the left needle and then knitting into the back of the loop). This is the way I'm supposed to M1, according to the pattern. I've been watching carefully to make sure I don't accidentally knit into the stitch below (which I've done).
Sometimes it looks right. And sometimes, there's a hole. The side that looks fine is the left (the second M1). The first one ends up with the hole.
I've frogged this sleeve probably 8 times now. At least. :grrr:
My poor husband fled the room last night.
Does anyone have any idea as to what I'm doing wrong? And any suggestions for making it right?
Thank you so much!!
