I apologize if this is somewhere on this thread but I’m totally new and don’t know how to phrase this ? let alone search for it…
I would like to know how to look at a piece and do the following things:
- count rows properly,
- know which side of the piece is the front,
- look at my needles and know what stitch I just completed and what stitch is ahead (for ex, if I’m knitting 2, purling 1 or whatever- and get lost), and
- look at the piece and recognize which bumps (or v’s or whatever) are which stitch.
I’ve been told a knit looks like a loop on the needle and a v in the fabric and purl looks like a knot on the needle and ridge in fabric but neither makes sense to me. Pix would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
