I've having an issue for a couple of weeks now (on and off, so that there is less throwing of yarn), and I'm hoping someone here can give me some guidance.
I'm trying to make this "sweet little bird" pattern located on "Knitted Toy Box" and in order to do so, you need to knit front and back... on the second line. Now, I can rock that first line (cast on 6), but I can't finish, or really even start the second line. I've found a few online videos showing me how to do it, and I even though I think I'm doing it right I must not be: I end up with three loops on the right needle, for each original loop on the left needle. I assume I'm looking for only two (it's hard to tell in the videos because they often do the stitch in the middle of a line.) Additionally, and probably as a result of these three loops, the stitches end up being so tight I can't keep knitting at all, and I have to unravel start again. It's soooo frustrating!
Please tell me what I'm doing wrong! I feel like I'm losing the battle against knitting, and I just don't want to make another scarf!
Thanks in advance,
P.S. - I can't post the link to it, because this is my first post. But if anyone wants to see it, I'll send it along!
