Hi there, I’m new and have joined to hopefully get some reassurance on a puzzling pattern I am doing.
I learned to knit from my mum when I was a child and have recently picked it back up again. I have two issues, the first is that my knitting doesn’t seem to look like knitting? I am doing stocking stitch, so knit a row purl a row and it just seems to look bobbley ather than like a straight kind of plait?
Second I’m knitting a Thomas the tank engine toy and the pattern says: chassis bas - top and bottom (both alike). Using b cast on 34 stitches, work 108 rows. Cast off.
So, do you read that as you have to make two of the same or just one?
Can you help?
Thank you!!! X
