[FONT=“Comic Sans MS”][COLOR="#300090"]I’m just starting out; so I tried a simple CO beginning with a slip knot and a twisting loops onto the needle. When I knit the first stitch, I suddenly have a gap between the needles. Each added knit makes the gap longer. Eventually, I do end up with what is identical to the LT CO on my right needle. But I have a long strand between my last stitch and that slip knot I started with. :??
My first try was the LT CO but knitting into that also caused problems. Now I have frogged a second time and having a second try at LT CO. :roll:
Okay, now I get it. Amy’s video does have one short but very important phrase near the end. “Your next row will be purl stitch.” D’oh! :doh:
So now I know:
- You [B]knit[/B] into a stitch where the loop (over the hook) is the neck and the previous row looks like the [B](“Vee” shape) of a scarf crossing in front of the neck, the loop[/B].
- [B]Purl[/B] into a stitch where the previous row crosses like the [B]scarf crossing the back of the neck[/B] (it just goes straight across like a ‘-’ dash).
