Hi everyone, I’m very new to knitting and I’ve run into a problem.
I’m currently trying to knit a baby blanket on US 6 circular needles flat. The pattern calls for me to alternate knits and purls every 5 stitches and that’s what I’ve been doing. Once I’ve finished a row, I flip the needles and make sure my working yarn is in my left hand and coming from the right. However, I can’t differentiate a pattern on my knit at all, from the picture it’s supposed to look like little checker board pieces from the squares of knits and then purls but for some reason it all looks like very similar stitches. I appreciate any help anyone could give me!
