Short Rows.

Postby daisydoodles » Wed Jul 18, 2012 3:08 pm

Help please!!! :oops:

I'm following the instructions on the ultimate longies pattern and I've checked you tube, but no matter what I do I end up with a hole wherever I turn! :doh:

The instructions differ from what I've seen on YouTube for the purl side, but even on the knit side I get a little hole - it looks like I've knitted the stitch wrong - what am I doing wrong???

Got it! :yahoo: ..... I think!! :oops:

Thanks Laceybat, I'm not exactly sure what was happening on the knit side, but the purl closure was down to me not purling through the back of the loops!! :doh:

I've undone the first 10 rows so many times now I know them by heart! :giggle:
