You may want to look ahead in the pattern. Sometimes the patterns refer to things you have to do on each needle. For example, some sock patterns will say, "knit to the last three stitches on needle...

Someone gave me the book "Posh Pooches" with knitting patterns for dogs. Maybe if I had a little lap dog I would knit just for the fun of it, but for my 60 lb boxer? No thank you.

It was fun...

I agree with suzeeq.

I combination knit often when I'm knitting flat. I've not noticed that my first stitch is loose. I also do not typically slip the first stitch of a row I'm knitting.

Hi momofthree... the only thing I'm wondering is whether you casted off looser on the top of the bag and that is creating the bowing effect? I guess I would do as you said and just be extra careful...

Honestly, I would knit a gauge swatch with the needle size you selected. I have found that I sometimes have to go up more than one needle size to get gauge.

Also, I would BLOCK my gauge swatch to...

Too Flat?

It's ultimately up to you, but I would think weighting it down might flatten the whole piece down. That is, if you want the piece to maintain any loft that is in the yarn, weighing it down might...

I'm confused.

When are you bringing the yarn to the front?
Which side of the work are you on?

I may be wrong

I may be wrong, but I think the BO at the beginning of the two rows makes it so the slant of the BO is symmetrical on both sides. That is, the BO are both pointing toward the center of the...

Yarn over the needle

It's actually just like it sounds: your yarn goes over the needle. When you're to the point at which you're supposed to add a YO, you take the working yarn and wrap it around the right needle one...

Would you agree that frogging is more ripping many stitches, rows, or even a whole project, and that tinking is usually UN-knitting back to a mistake right after you've caught it?

I just like to see...

This was the first book I purchased because "dummy" books have helped me so much in the past. It was VERY helpful to me when I first started. Even now I go back to it from time to time. :)

For me it's very helpful to be in a well-lit environment, and KNOW your stitch pattern really well ahead of time.

You have to swatch it and play around with different needle sizes to get gauge right.
