SSK (I think)
I've been knitting for a couple of months and am now doing dishcloths that are supposed to have heart shapes in them. The pattern calls for SSK, then knit 2 together and and although I seem to be doing the stitches correctly, I don't see any patterns appearing in the dishcloth. Could my tension be too tight? I know the little holes are supposed to make the shapes, but they aren't there!

Welcome KnittyGritty!

It sounds like you're neglecting to do a yarn over (yo) adjacent to each decrease!

Check out the Increase page, or the Abbreviations Explained page, for how to do a yo.

And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
