I’m a new knitter and I’ve learned how to do the cast on and the knit. Whenever I try to purl though I’ll only ever get one purl (flat side) and then it starts to become bumpy again(which I assume is the purl turning into a knit) I would like to purl three rows (continuous flat side) but I don’t know what else to do. I’ve been following videos but I’m still not getting it right. is there a way or a technique to make sure the yarn ball stringy stays in front of the needle and to make sure the purl comes out a purl?
Any help would be so appreciated. I’m starting to get really discouraged.
