I’m very new to this so apologies if this question is badly phrased/clueless… But I am trying to learn rib stitch, 1 knit and 1 purl alternating. No matter how many tutorials I knit along to, or how many times I try, I always get the same problem and can’t proceed past the first row. I cable cast on, then on my first row I am stuck with uneven loops that intersect at the roof of the needle. I’m not sure of the terminology and can’t find any images that address this problem, but because of it, I am unable to continue to a new row.
Pictures attached (bad, I know!)
1) top/roof of needle
2) back of first row
3) front of first row.
Any advice would be so appreciated - I don’t know any knitters I can turn to!
Thank you <3
