okay this may seem like a simple thing but I'm just not getting it. I have a scarf pattern that calls for K1, yo. k2tog. I thought this would be simple enough for me to--I'm very much a beginner and have not been able to knit much lately. But even after watching the video on yarn overs, mine still did not look good. Maybe it was the yarn? I have Manos del Uraguary that I've been wanting to use but maybe this isn't the right pattern for the yarn.
The two main problems I've had were the yo's were very loose and the K2tog were so tight I could barely get my needle through.
Am I just out of practice?
thanks for any advice.
