Along with another thread I started on the same project…this is kind of a huh?
A simple ribbed scarf from LionBrand. K2, P2 across. Cool, I’m good with that (although I struggle with purl) Next instruction is to K in knit stitches and P in purl stitches. Me…my stitches on the last row ended in purl so I need to start the new row with purl since I P in purl. NO…it doesn’t work that way. After many youtube videos I learned that what was P now becomes K because you turned it around to start the next row. Huh? Why not just say row two starts with P2 then K2 and follow that pattern to the end? Repeat 1 & 2.
Because in my “in the box” thinking…When I start row 2 I should be starting with purl because that was my last stitch on row 1.
How is a beginner to know that your stitch changes name when you flip it over? OY!
Forever a beginner, I’m afraid.
