The title is pretty self explanatory. I’m attempting to make this Teddy Bear design. I decided to put a border on it just to make it into a practice dishrag. My border is “k1 p1 k1” but the only problem is my purling stitches look horrible (I think). I keep getting frustrated because after I finish a row it looks silly. It really doesn’t look like anything at all. Should I just keep ahead with this and see if maybe adding more will reveal anything? Sorry if this is a silly question
Also I’m using Lily Sugar 'n Cream medium worsted yarn and it keeps splitting up while i’m trying to actually pull the yarn through a stitch. Is there something to put on the yarn that can help this or is it kind of something every knitter has to deal with?
