Ok…I think I got the knit, purl, cast on/off stuff down ok. However, I think I’m kind of a tight knitter–binding off and k2tog are a bear, because the stitches are so tight I have to really work to get the kneedles in them sometimes, or use my fingers to help. This pattern I’m trying now is a scarf from Scarfstyle/Pam Allen. It calls for Jo Sharp infustion kid mohair–spendy! Size 8 needles, pattern is: (hope it’s legal to print this?) Row 1 (RS) Knit—(Right side of what???)
Row 2 Purl
Row 3 k1, *(k2tog) 3x, (yo,k1) 6x, (k2tog) 3x, rep from * to last st, k1
Row 4 knit
Oh–I forgot–CO is 38 st
So…my 1st problem was when repeating, I was omitting row 1 on repeat and just going to row 2 from 4–duh! I should have 2 rows of knit, right?
Row 3–If I follow between the *, I should have 2 k2togs together before the yo? There should be 38 stitches at all times? Right now I have 53! I must be knitting my k2togs as 2 instead of 1? How do you see this stuff? It’s so fuzzy and SMALL. How do I rip it out and start over with out ruining it? How do I fix it when I make another mistake–because I will
