So I started this scarf as a beginner project and it’s:
Cast on 32 stitches
Pretty simple, right?
I cast on and the first row after that goes fine. Then when I go back on the WS, the loops on the needles are turned backwards so I have to flip them in order to get my needle in to knit properly. I don’t have that problem with the purling stitches, just the knits…and not necessarily all the time.
I want to go onto more intense projects so I can do this cool monkey backpack for my daughter in the Stitch ‘n’ Bitch book but if I can’t master basic knitting and purling in a rib scarf, I’m not going to tackle intarsia, increasing, or decreasing yet.
