I was knitting a pattern that said “Beg with a purl row, work 5 rows in stocking st.”
i misunderstood (apparently) and instead of doing P, K, P, K, P I did a Purl row and THEN 5 rows of stocking stitch. now i’m 5 or 6 rows later, realizing that my knitting is on the wrong side.
since my mistake, i’ve done the 5 rows of stocking stitch and then started decreasing my knitting by decreasing 8 each odd row and purling each even row.
i know it’s a little late to go back, and it’s for my mom (so she’ll love it anyways) but i was wondering how i could switch it to being the right side again at this point. i don’t want to add any extra rows since i realize now that i already did that at the beginning which caused my mistake. any ideas?
i thought maybe i could un-purl my last row and redo it as a knitted row… but would that help since my next two rows still need to be knitted (while decreasing) and then purled?
i feel like i’ve knitted myself into a corner! eek!
