This is the first time I am using circular needles and the first time I am knitting in round. Well, not really the first time. I have knitted in round with double pointed needles when I made a doggy sweater, but I was knitting in rib stitch then and everything looked/turned alright.
I am making this top now http://secure.elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=122024 in garter stitch. I made the front, the back, and the sleeves, as the pattern says. I put them on circular needles in a way that the tails where I have joined the yarn are inside the circle, so I was planning the outside, the side that is facing me when I am knitting in round, to be the right side of the garment. I made 3-4 rounds and now I noticed that I am getting stockinet stitch, and the Vs are on the right side of the garment, the Us are on the wrong side of the garment. I went to check the picture of the top, and it seems that the whole thing is in garter stitch, at least that is what I am seeing on the outside. Now, I know that once I am done I can turn it, concile the tails from where I have joined the yarn, and made the side with Us to be the right side of the garment.
I was just wondering if I am doing something wrong. Should I have put the tails on the outside when I was putting the pieces on the circulars and then knit in round. Or should I have purln instead of knit.
I hope this make sense. :??
