First things first…read this
and then give us the link to the pattern(if you can) so we can follow along and help…
but just for now…pay attention to your working yarn when you turn. if it isnt where it should be it can pull the last stitch in places it shouldnt be and cause the knitter to think there are 2 stitches to be worked instead of one. (there’s a post about this in that thread i directed you to)
I think that is the most common mistake. Id check that out first.
You can make anything you feel like you can handle… Dont let anyone stifle you by telling you that you cant or shouldnt.
I often tell people to go and get a washcloth pattern book and make all of them.(they make great gifts to someone else or yourself!!)and make sure you get one that has pattern stitches, not just holes…lol come back to ask any questions and by the time your done with those you will have encountered quite a few of the common issues that you will need to have conquored before you tackle something that will take more of your brain…LOL:zombie: And you will have “taught” your fingers what they need to be doing… and when you look at your work, you will be able to see whether its right or wrong. Its just a good idea in my opinion. But then again…everybody’s got one…
