Sorry I was out of town and could not view all comments until now.
So I'll read all replys now and see if I can figure out my mistakes. But one area that im sure now that I have been making is my yo (s) pertaining to the yo after my purl row. (i can view a youtube on this process to ensure i am putting my yo(s) on my needle correctly for k & p rows. Currently reviewing all comments. Normally I would reply faster but but was on the road majority of yesterday. I can't believe you and others are actually helping me this SITE is so great! Best regards Donna

Wow what a great reply. Regarding "rip" back......would love to be able to do this. Each time I have started over on my project I have taken all stitches off my circular needle. So I would love your advise on how to RIP back to the my last row that has the correct number (1st) between my markers. While I know how to go back a few stitches to correct a mistake and pickup up dropped stitches I am not advanced enough to know how to rip back. Do you know of a link or video on ripping back on circular needles. Thank you so much for your help and further reply. I'm actually knitting this shawl as a gift for my best friend who recently lost her father. Again kudos to you for your expert advise!!!!!

Here's a video for ripping back and getting the stitches on the needle again:

Inserting a needle before unraveling
Just a note: Amy says "cable needle" and really she means "circular needle." A cable needle is for working cables.

When you've done that, you might want to use a lifeline.
Using a Lifeline
Should you make a mistake and have to frog ("rip it! rip it!") you'll be able to get the stitches back on the needle more easily. I currently am using two lifelines. I put one in at the beginning of the pattern repeats and move the first one up at the beginning of the next repeat. I'm using crochet thread.

Row 9: K 2, *yo, k2tog, rep from * to 1 st before marker, yo, k 1, yo, sl marker, k 1, sl marker, yo, k 1, **yo, k2tog, rep from ** to last 2 sts, yo, k 2 – 23 sts.

I would rip back to the last row that has a single stitch between the markers and try the next row watching that you maintain one stitch between markers on the even and odd rows. Make sure the yo isn't slipping under the marker iand next to the central backbone knit one. If the yo is shifting, move it to outside the marker. Also, the yarn over doesn't use a stitch, it occurs between two stitches like this.

I think you just made a major error clear....the knit to last stich before my marker.....yo, k1, yo, sl marker. Wow I'll try to watch this & many tks Donna

This site is great. It's here that I learned just about everything I know about knitting and how to find things when I need to. I'm still learning so much from everyone!


BTW I'm not an expert, there are experts here and they are my mentors. I do them and their wonderful teaching. Sometimes I get to pass along what I've learned through them. That makes me feel really good.

Puleeeeze! I do have a reputation to maintain.

OK, so you're not doing a yo so something else is going on. I find that the only way I can really figure out how to do it right, and often I don't figure out what I did wrong, is to just keep at it with yarn I can sacrifice to learning until I get it right.

When all is said and done, a yo is simply a matter of the yarn is lying across the needle. When you wrap the yarn as if to knit it is lying across the needle and the working yarn is in back of your work; if you need to purl next, just move it between the needles as you would to be ready to purl making sure the strand is still over your needle (it will then be wrapped around, not just over, the needle.) It took me quite a while to figure out what the instructions given in writing and various videos really boiled down to. If this doesn't help you, please just disregard it all and go with what does. We all see and interpret things differently.

Got it/got it......but I can't find a video that explains how to YO when required AFTER my LAST row that was purled. Maybe if I'm required to YO on the row that I'm knitting it doesn't matter that I pulled on the last row???? I found the video on yo when purling.....but my patter (splendid triangle shawl does not call for this task). On the road again soon so I hope you can reply. Many advance thanks Donna potter
