Hey all! I'm new to this forum and also a brand new knitter!...Well, I'm trying to be, anyway.
I've done well with creating several stockinette swatches and want to make for my first project, a ribbed infant hat using knit 2, purl 2.
My problem is that I'm doing something very wrong, and I can't quite figure out how to correct it. I'm learning ALL of my knitting by way of YouTube, and have only just found this site a few days ago.
Whenever I try to yarn over when I move from knit to purl stitches, all it seems to do is add another stitch. Where am I messing up there? I've been doing test rows of about 8 stitches, and after about 3 rows in, the whole thing just looks like a tangled mess of knots. I've watched videos about this, and thought I was following what they were doing, but...Something just isn't right, and it's so frustrating trying to figure it out!
Should I try again and post a photo of what's happening to my swatches to give a better idea of what's going wrong? I thank you all in advance for any help!!
