Okay. I cast on my stitches. I knit them all. When I get to my last cast-on stitch, what do I do?
What I’ve been doing is stitching through that last stitch. That leaves me with an empty left needle. Then I turn my work around to purl and bring the empty needle (now the right) into my first, left stitch, and I continue.
This can’t be right, because I keep ending up with one more stitch on each row. It seems to me I’m accidentally doing an increase.
So, to keep from doing that, how do I finish my rows? Do I leave that last cast-on loop on the left needle, then turn my work? That would leave me with an untouched loop on my right needle when I go to purl. Would that keep me from adding that extra stitch on each row?
I’m teaching myself, so, yeah. I’ve looked all over the internet and in a few books, and I haven’t seen anything mentioning how to end a row. I don’t know anyone who can knit, so I can’t really ask anyone to show me.
Can you guys help me? I can do all the actual knitting and purling just fine, it’s just that I don’t end up with an equal amount of stitches, so it’s kind of useless. :\
