I'm teaching myself how to knit using videos online as well as booklets. I'm working on a dishcloth...figured that would be a good first project, however, I need some help.
The pattern says to cast on 36 sts which I've done and have 36 sts on my needle. Now I turn the needle and knit across row 1 after which I again have 36 sts on my needle. NOW, I turn the needle and knit across row 2 but when I finish that row, I end up with 37 sts on my needle. I then turn the needle and knit across row three after which I end up with 38 sts on my needle. What am I doing wrong???
