View Full Version : Help I've made a mistake...

I don't have my knitting class again until Monday and I had been looking forward to working on this blanket all week but have run into a snag, hoping someone can tell from the photo what I did wrong.

So on the previous row I had ran out of a skein and added a new one, my instructor showed me how to lay the new thread over the needle and work on however I must have made a mistake because there is a large gap/hole. I would appreciate any help. Hopefully you can see from the photo the short yarn hanging on the left is an end I had cut, to weave in later. The short yarn pulled down laying across the project is the other new end I worked in. My skein yarn is off to the right...crossing my fingers hoping for help.

Thanks so much for reading :)

It looks like the ends aren't really joined. You can tie them loosely together, then after you knit a few more rows, retie them securely and arrange the knot where it won't show. I usually put mine in the purl bump of a knit stitch on the WS. Then weave the ends in later.

Doesn't look like a mistake to me. It just looks like you started knitting with a skein which is what I do. I leave the "hole" till later and then weave the ends in. It's okay to leave it, but if it bothers you knit another row then weave those ends in. I bring them across each other and weave them in on the opposite side to hold the gap together.

Thanks ladies, I did eventually figure it out, and I weaved in the end because it had become unwrapped. And yes like magic the next row made that hole disappear. Thank you so much for you advice!
