I picked up this book (how to teach yourself to knit visually) a few weeks ago and it is super. It has lots of beginner stuff with more intermediate information and mixed skill level projects for later.
The only weird thing is that they had weird directions for making a rib stitch,
knit 2 then purl 2 knit 2 repeat to end of row
then purl 2 knit 2 purl 2 repeat to end of row
I’m pretty sure that is how the directions went and you were supposed to get vertical alternating ribs of knit stitches and purl stiches, unless perhaps now that i think about it, maybe i was supposed to look at it sideways to see the ribbing? maybe i unraveled it all for no reason?! what do y’all think???
definitely didn’t look like ribbing to me…
perhaps i should stick to the site’s video advice of k2p2 to end of row and repeat forever and ever
