Hi, I’m a brand new knitter and found this pattern for an “easy scarf”. It uses the faggot stitch. I thought the picture looked pretty and the directions sounded pretty easy but I’ve been sitting for over an hour and have gotten nowhere.
I guess my question is, how should this stitch look at the beginning? Maybe I’m just not giving it enough of a chance? It seems like it just wants to curl around my needle, is this normal?
A video of this stitch being done had the pattern go K1, *YO, k2tog; rep from *
*K1, YO, k2tog; rep from *
Are both ways correct?
Thanks for helping a confused, stupid feeling newbie out!
