Trouble combining knit & purl
I'm new to knitting and have been teaching myself with a book. I do just fine with entire rows of knitting and purling (stockinette and garter patterns are a cinch). BUT --- I can't seem to k1, p1, in the same row without making a mess out of it. It looks tangled, I pick up extra stitches, etc. Argggh.
Can anyone explain what I might be doing wrong? I've been very careful to watch what I'm doing - even watching the videos to make sure I got the knit and purl techniques right in the first place. (Which I have.) I'm exhausted from trying to figure it out. Many thanks.
(This site is great by-the-way...)
