I am a beginning knitter and my first project turned out fairly well. I decided to try my hand at a sweater, and even though the pattern is not [I]difficult[/I] per say, I am getting frustrated with it. First off: the pattern says - decrease 1 stitch on each side every 8 rows. so does this mean I decrease when I START the 8th row or do I decrease starting the row AFTER it?
My second problem: the pattern is a basic moss-rib pattern: RS- k1 *k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 (all the way across ending with knit stitch)
WS- p2 *k2, p1, k2, p2 (all the way across)
when the knit and purl stitches line up to form the ribbing (which to me looks like stockinette) it looks like my stitches are twisted. So I guess they are hung on the needle wrong… and I guess I have to frog it… again. :doh:
Just for informations sake, I am doing continental knitting and I am comparing the way I am doing it with the videos on here and it is the same. Likewise I have never had this problem before. :help:
If anyone can help and knows what I am doing wrong, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
