I'm a newbie here and in desperate need of help!
I'm trying to knit these socks as a Christmas present http://www.wooltrends.ca/freepatterns_details.asp?pageCat=159
and have completed the first 16 rounds of the cable pattern, but it just doesn't look right!
By the image, it looks as though I should have small cables running all the way down the sock... but I have kind of wonky, bumpy lines on the outside of my sock and some small cables on the inside but they seem to end, or start, in a mish-mash of stitches where it looks like the knits and purls of each round haven't matched up.
I believe I'm doing the right number of stitches as I always end on the right stitch in each round... but I don't know what I'm doing wrong!
This is the first time I've worked with double pointed needles and was finding the process quite easy... apparently the pattern doesn't agree.
Does anyone have any suggestions before I give up?
