View Full Version : HELP with Magic Loop Knitting

06-18-2008, 02:13 PM
As many of you know, I have not attempted to knit anything except rectangles.. But I am going to take KnittinMitchie's online Magic Loop Sock Class and I thought I'd try a little practicing before hand. For some odd reason, I keep increasing :hair: when magic loop knitting. It happens to be on the rows that I am ribbing (K1, P1). I know how easy for beginners to increase in knitting and I've mastered NOT doing that in flat knitting, but apparrently do so in my loop knitting. :whoosh: Suggestions?? :frog:

I had that trouble occasionally when I first started ML, mostly when I switched it around to knit on the other needle. Sometimes I would loop the working yarn over the cable before starting to knit the 2nd needle.
