You need to knit the knit stitches and purl the purls.

On an even number of stitches and k1, p1 on the first row – and the second row, and the third row, etc. If you have an odd number of sts - k1, p1 on the first row (and all odd numbered rows) and p1, k1 on the even numbered rows.

If you end a row with a knit, start with a purl. If you end a row with a purl, start with a knit.

I took a knitting class when I learned how to knit. The teacher always said to read your work or in other words: knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches unless your pattern tells you otherwise. knit the v’s and purl the dashes or bumps or whatever you call them. Good Luck!! :happydance: :muah: :cheering: :muah: :happydance:
