One way you can learn to "read" your knitting is to knit up a small (maybe 4") square, and intentionally make certain mistakes in the knitting, marking them with a safety pin or stitch marker, and continuing to knit. Write down what mistakes you made on which marker. Then when you're done with the square, go back and take each safety pin out one by one as you "read" what your mistakes look like.
