So I’m going off of the monkey pattern in Sara Keen’s Knitted Wild Animals book and I’m stuck. So I’ve casted on the number of stitches needed but here’s where I run into problems. The first set of instructions is first and next foll 3 alt rows: p, which I understand the first row and next 3 will alternate between knit and purl. So if understanding this correctly 1,3,5,and 7 will be purled, correct me if I’m wrong. However when I go to the next steps which is Inc row: k5, m1 k14,m1,k5 and then the next row of inc: k6, m1,k14,m1,k6 I am getting ws knitting on the rs and it looks horrid. What am I doing wrong?
Very cute pattern!
Which part of the monkey are you knitting?
Is there anything about the increase rows being on the even rows (knit rows) with a purl row in between?
I realized I misinterpreted the pattern and was doing the alternating incorrectly.
