I am currently working on the Knitting Bag sweater shown on the cover of the Sally Melville Color book. I have added the colors for the first blocks (on the knit side). And this was fine. However when I go to the purl side and pick up the color, something farkles and I get only half of the first stitch in the color and the other half in previous color. Can anyone suggest a reference for me to learn how to do this correctly?
I am an intermediate/advanced knitter, but this is confusing me. I do what has been defined as “combination knitting”. I know I am just missing something, but what?
