I just got my first needles and a “how to” book on knitting for Christmas. I’ve taught myself how to knit and purl and cast on and bind off, and now I’m mostly practicing to develop good tension and to learn more about the stitches.
The problem I’m having is that my knit stitches look like purl stitches. I’ve looked in my book and at pictures online, and all the knit stitches have the “V” shape, and mine don’t. I’ve looked at multiple videos and things and I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.
Did any of you have this problem when starting out? Do you have any suggestions of what I might be doing wrong?
BTW, I’m using the English method.
