View Full Version : my pattern is on the wrong side

I'm knitting along just fine when after about 8 inches into my scarf the pattern is now showing up on the wrong side. What did I do?
The pattern is
Row1: k4, [k2tog]3x, [yo,k1]5x, yo, [k2tog]6x, [yo,k1]5x, yo, [k2tog]3x, k4
Row 2&3: knit
Row 4; k4, purl to last 4 sts, k4

My guess would be that you might have forgotten one of the two knit rows somewhere. You can give yourself a good lesson in reading your knitting if you start several inches before the change and 'read' each line- point out to yourself row 1, row 2, row 3, row 4. Then by the time you get to the change, you might be able to recognize what you did. :)

Yes, you either forgot one of the plain knit/purl rows or did one too many. Look at the rows as Abbily suggests and you'll find the one that's out of place.

When doing patterns with multi-row repeats, I always make sure I stop in the SAME place each time. It desn't necessarily have to be at the end of the pattern, just pick a good stopping pooint for you. That way, when you pick it up again, you always know where to start again .
