- Learning to Purl. Uneven stitches and all, the yarn is in the front and I am getting the ribbing pattern.
- The pattern I was trying said purl one row, knit one row, but I only read the purl part. Reading the directions is VERY important when learning from a book. I guess I was a perfect candidate for this book - large print, lots of pictures and geared toward the beginner.
- This is the correct way that pattern was to be worked. I think this is called a stockinette stitch.
- I once heard my sister(who thinks knitting is easy and crocheting is too complicated to learn) say, knit one purl two, while she was working on a project, so I tried it, but I was working on an odd number of stitches. I will try it again on another practice piece.
Now on to Lesson 5: Increasing & Decreasing.
