I’m following a pattern to learn a technique so I can apply it to my designs. The pattern is for a zippered bag/clutch.
I knitted 10 rows as instructed. The 4th row is marked as instructed.
I then had to take a smaller needle and pick up the stitches on row 4. No problem there. The following is were I get messed up. Here are the pattern words exactly.
“Rightside facing, bring the needles parallel to each other so that the work is folded on itself and the smaller needle is in the back. Knit the first stitch on the smaller-size needle together with the first stitch on the larger needle. Cont. to end of row.”
I’ve taken the knitting off the needles already, I get frustrated easily.
I tried to knit the 2 stitches, 1 from each needle and it created 2 stiches instead of 1. In the next line after all this it says to increase and the number of stitches you should have by the end of that row. Due to that number, I know I should not have 2 stitches for every stitch on the needle. I hope that made sense.
What I am hoping is that someone knows of a video for this. I am terrible at invisioning text explanations. However, any guidence will be greatly appreciated. I don’t want to give up on this like I do so many times.
