Beginner ribbed scarf gone wrong
Hi! I just started knitting a few weeks ago. I seemed to pick up the basic knit and purl quickly, so I decided to move onto a ribbed scarf. I found several patterns online that called for a knit 2 purl 2, repeating until the end of the scarf. I started with a long tail cast on and I do slip the first stitch to help manage the edges. I count the first slip stitch as a knit then knit one more and continue with the pattern. At the beginning of my scarf I can see where the ribbed pattern was showing. Now it just looks like a jumbled mess. Any suggestion on what I might be doing wrong?
