If I’m supposed to “work stockinette in the round” (as in socks), does that mean knit every round? I think that’s right, right?? :??
Yep, you’re right.
wooooo hooooo, I’m really gettin the hang of this. I LOVE sock knitting!
Thanks so much!!
named stitch patterns in knitting, (garter, stocking knit, sead, ribbing)
are named for HOW THEY LOOK, not HOW THEY ARE CREATED.
A standard way to make garter stitch is knit every row.
but you can purl every row and get the identical effect… no one would know!)
and Knit every row–when working in the round is stocking knit…
ribbing, (1 X 1 ribbing) is K1, P1 but then so is seed stitch!
work K1, P1 on an even number of stitches, you get ribbing
work k1, P1 on an odd number of stitches you get seed stitch…
well you do if you are working flat and turning your knitting at the end of every row…
you have to consider, style of working (round or flat) and number of stitches (even or odd) not just the “pattern” or instructions to get the desired outcome!
