My Mum taught me to knit when she came to visit a few days ago and I was practising doing several rows of garter stitch and then several of purl and I was fine. Now she’s gone I can only do garter stitch. I’ve watched all the videos I can find on the purl stitch (English method) and I just can’t do them continuously. The actual method I understand. So much so that the first one comes out as it should. However the second row doesn’t. If I look on the side of the wool facing away from me then it has worked but not on the side facing me. It’s like it alternates back and forth. Can someone please explain where I’m going wrong?
Thanks in advance.
