Increasing on a single rib

hello all, I feel I am doing 1 step forward and 3 steps back with this pressie for my niece.

I am still doing the first rib and I started last saturday :grrr:

I have to make a stitch on a single rib apart from creating little holes which I have learned can be avoided by twisting the stitch, which stitch should I be doing to make one. (mk 1)

I checked out the videos and know that I have to knit into the back of the stitch according to my pattern, so should I do that every time I make a stitch I am more than a little confused plleeese hellllp :shrug:


Some rib patterns have you knit into the back of the stitch.

What does it say, exactly?

Some patterns call for working into the back of a stitch for ribbing. What does your’s say, exactly?

Why can’t I post new topic It keeps saying DEBUG MODE sorry to post here but only place I can, Moderators help

yeah it said knit into back of stitch I turned the loop before knitting into it then turned it again before putting it back on the needle. It seemed to work o.k and looked a lot better than before.

What I done first was knitted back into the back of the loop lying inbetween the knitting instead of putting it onto a needle first.

Opps, anyway I have now passed the dredded ribbing and although I have a couple of small holes I am not going back again.

Thanks for your time.
