Stuck on 1824 Blouson

I think I just answered my own question. I think I was supposed to purl a row before starting the stockinette. Oops. Rip Rip.

Summer 2007 Interweave

I am stuck on my 1824 Blouson. I picked up the stitches for the pleats and knit the stockinette that will be folded in for the hem. However, on the photo there is this nice little line that separates the reverse stockinette (body of sweater) and the stockinette (hem). I do not have this.

Where does that line come from? I thought I picked up the stitches correctly:

Looking at right side of sweater (reverse stockinette), holding it in my left hand, I picked up the stitches.

Can someone point out my error?
