Hi, so I'm new to knitting and new to this forum and I need help. I'm trying to learn how to knit and I've looked at youtube videos to get a visual of how to do stitches and I get the knit stitch and once I understood what to do, the purl stitch does seem easy like they say. I feel like I'm doing it right, but something is not going right going from knit stitch to purl stitch.
I want to do this blanket that calls for 3 knit, 3 purl, 3 knit, 3 purl and so on. Well here's a picture. I have the 3 knit on the right and the 3 purl (as I attempted) on the left. But what's with the extra diagonal piece between the two sets of 3? What am I doing wrong?
