Ribbing on double pointed needles?
I'm working on my first pair of mittens (nightmare, but darned if I'll stop!), and I just did about an inch of the ribbing for the cuffs, only to find that
A. my knit 2 purl 2 ribbing was not even? Should I knit 1 purl 1 or something? It ended up looking like purl 1 knit 3 on the side that will be facing outwards!
B. it was diagonal? Pretty steeply diagonal, actually.
In case it matters, I'm using size 6 double pointed needles and there are 40 stitches around, so 10 pairs on either needle. Only using two needles to hold the stitches and one to knit because when I used all four, it was shaped really awkwardly.
Thanks for your help! I'm also on Skype, if anyone is so inclined.
