Being a novice knitter, (I started all of a day ago) I’ve run into a number of problems in just trying to make a simple scarf. I’m taking a class at our town’s knitting store, and the idea is to have the scarf finished by next sunday’s class.
Some of my loops had fallen when I was purling and so, I just sort of hooked them back on. The project is being done on a size 15 needle, (10 mm) and is 20 stitches with a knit stitch then a purl stitch for 8 rows and then two of the eighth stitch.
It looks like that so far, small I know. And I’m on a purl stitch with this current row.
My problem is my loops fell off, or I did something wrong so that when I purl, (And I purl the continental way if that makes a difference.) I end up with something that looks like:
And instead of a nice little purl, I have a huge loop in my line of knitting. Which definitely is not attractive in a scarf, nor anything else. If it helps at all I took a picture of the loops incase they were done wrong or anything.
I’ll probably give in and see them tomorrow, but I would like to have more than 3 sections of 8 done in a day. If clearer pictures would be better or if you need more information, I am more than willing to try to provide you with that.
Hope this rambling made some sense.
