I'm wondering if someone can help me and my daughter
. We are both new to knitting so I hope you can bear with us and the long explanation! We've been reading a lot on this forum and everyone is so helpful and informative, we just wanted to say thank you
I have a pattern that calls for working stockinette stitch on 2 DP for 6 rows after casting on. You end in a purl row then transfer the stitches evenly on 3 double points with the knit side facing out. Then you are supposed to start knitting in the round with knit stitches.
My problem is that to have the working yarn on the right needle with the knit stitches facing out, I end up holding the needles wrong (the work in front of me and the needles in back of the work further away from me) and it ends up that the new stitches are purl bumps on the outside instead of knit stitches.
Do I hold the needles the correct way with the needles in front of me and the work away from me (behind it) and start knitting with the working yarn on the left needle so that the knit stitches end up on the outside and I join the round at the beginning of the second row? Or am I completely wrong about what I am thinking?
I really appreciate anyones help! thank you so much!
