Hello! Beginner knitter here. I’ve only been knitting for about a month and have just stumbled upon a pattern that I wanted to try, and it requires 2x2 rib stitch which I have never worked with before. I’ve been trying to knit it for hours and hours but it just never looked quite right. Am I doing something wrong?
It looks and feels like a scallop stitch instead, even though I’ve carefully followed the discipline pattern of K2 P2 and so on. It just doesn’t look right, don’t you think? It looks all thick scrunched up and tangled, and I can’t even tell apart the purls and the knits, and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.
In the picture, that was about 6-7 rows, and all of it just scrunches up like that. Some help and guidance, please? I’m fairly new to this.
Some more detail. I’m using 4.5mm needles, by the way. I’m sorry if this is a stupid question, I’m really confused and I want to get it right!
