I'm brand new to knitting and just took my first lesson last Sunday. I can cast-on pretty well and I've knit about 12 rows since then. Let me see if I can describe my method, because I don't know what it is called. I taped a color tab to the needle that was in my left hand so that I would know to keep it in my left hand.
I just keep knitting from one needle to the other always starting at the back of the loop. It looks like Jersey knit, but my project is totally curling. Looking at it, I would think it was the right way to make a sweater, but I want a scarf. Am I supposed to alternate knitting and purling?
I feel like I have only been knitting.
Does any of this make sense?
