I just started knitting yesterday, or at least tried to. I was able to do the knitted cast on but then when I went to do knit and purl stitches I would mess up somewhere and end up with way more stitches. I didn’t know how to fix it/tink so I kept just taking the whole thing off and redoing it over and over again…
I’m trying to knit a 2 color Sherbrooke Cowl.
I did a 60 stitch “long-tail” cast on - 40 yellow and then 20 pink
"long-tail" is in quotes because I don’t really have a tail. I did the slip-knot and then used the strands that are connected to the ball.
So the pattern is 5knit 5purl repeat, then the next row is 2knit 2purl repeat, and then repeat all over
I’m confused on what to do with the color I’m not currently using. I can’t really just drop it off as it’s still connected to the ball.
