thanks brooke, i’m off to go look at your blog!
i swatched it both ways – as written and with garter ridges. i like them both, but like you, was thinking about doing the garter ridge because of the definition. i think my problem is that having never wrapped and turned before, i anticipated it as the “problem” stitches being all in the next row, and it’s dawning upon me that they’re staggered on up. does that make any sense? i think i just instinctively got most of the gap stitches properly, but skipped one here and there, hence the holes. hopefully i can figure this out, because i’m dyeing to get this started!
