thanks so much for answering my question about yarn overs. it really helped me!
now i have another problem. (can you tell that i'm kinda new at this? lol)
i'm trying to knit a triangle for a bikini sort of pattern. i'm not using a pattern, i'm just making it, because here i am figuring, 'it's a triangle, how bad could it be?'
in any case, i am knitting in stockinette, and decreasing on the knit side. i am knitting through the back loops so that it doesn't do the curling thing.
at the beginning of my knit row, i k2tog in the normal way (through the front loops) and it's decreasing just fine. however, i get to the end of the row, and try and knit SSK, and... i don't see a decrease.
what am i doing wrong?
