Double Knit Heart hotpad
Could someone show me how to start the double knit heart hotpad? I saw the video, but it only shows the ending. I've tried and tried and tried, but cannot get the 2nd row to come out right!

Please help!

Have you followed the written directions for the pattern? They include the first few rows and may help you with row 2.
http://www.knittinghelp.com/c/free-k...e-knit-hot-pad
Is it something in particular that you see going wrong with row 2?
Row 1: sl first st, *with both colors in back k1 W, with both colors in the front p1 R, repeat from * across to last st, with both colors to the front p last st with both colors.

Row 2: sl first st, with both colors in back k1 R, with both colors in front p1 W, *with both colors in back k1 W, with both colors in front p1 R, repeat from * to the last two sts, with both colors in back k1 R, with both colors in front p1 W, p last st with both colors.
