don't laugh at me:)
 
I have made too many scarves to count :teehee: , I know how to increase and decrease, the socket stitch was a breese as well as a right turn twist. :cheering: ...HOWEVER the rib stitch left me in the dark! I kept doing the moss stitch :?? , which when you don't want it is VERY VERY WRONG :wall: So I just wanted to share my very first real success with the rib stitch. :cheering: ...now if I can just break the pattern code :doh: there will be nothing in my way! :eyebrow:
OH my goodness! and now for something completly different! A woman call my house looking for one of my cousin in laws....I forgot the cousin in laws is divorced from my cousin and gave the number out...OH yeah my cousin is remarried....OOOPS :oops:

:teehee: One of first thing I always tell newbies is to learn what the stitches look like. This comes in real handy with ribbing because it's simply knitting the knit stitches and purling the purl stitches as they face you. The backside of a knit stitch is a purl etc.

If you have an even number of stitches this becomes very easy.

K,P,K,P,K,P on the front side is exactly the same on the backside when you turn.

If you choose to do an odd number of stitches like this

K,P,K,P,K on the front side would become P,K,P,K,P on the backside when you turn.

Moss/seed stitch is what you get when you knit the purls etc. ..

Does this help? :hug:

I'm :cheering: with ya... I finally figured out the rib stitch today. I'm making soon to be born grandson a stocking cap to wear home ( long story- family tradition).

I finally realized duh. after 2 yrs.. that a knit on side is a pearl on other.. I knew that,,but just didn't fully connect to the synapse up there.

I'm actualy doing ribbing!!!!!!!!!


It looks like it is supposed to!!!! So I know the joy !!!!!
