New Knitter fleck stich advise
Hi, I'm a new knitter. I've made about 800 scarves. I was trying to branch out by making my sister this fleck stich purse. The patern is:
Row one: knit
Row two: purl
Row three: knit one purl one knit one purl one...
Row four: purl
Row one I'm aces. Row two ain't bad. Row three, I have a little mantra that helps me keep the knitting and purling separated, but then when I go to purl Row four, I can't tell where I'm supposed to be starting.
I'm thinking perhaps my work is too tight. Or...
Any help would be greatly appreciated (by myself and my family, they've asked that I stop making them scarves).
