Hello oh lovely magical knitters! I’m a total newbie and this is my first post. Knitwise I’m only a few days old, learning from a combination of this site’s videos/my mother/my friend S. Basically, I’ve been practise knitting with Rowan Big Wool, which I adore the feel of. I’ve been doing basically a long rectangle which will one day be a scarf, using knit one/purl one.
It’s been going fine except that I find that I really don’t like the appearance of the ‘wrong’ side - not the one that looks like grains, the one that has a sort of bumpy wiggly pattern. This may be a totally naieve question, but is there a way of knitting - maybe a different stitch pattern or something - which means that both sides look like the ‘right’ side? Just anything to get rid of this wiggly bump effect, really … does ribbing result in the same both sides? And is it possible to make a scarf ribbed lengthways?
Any help appreciated, especially from such experienced people such as yourselves
