I am in the process of teaching myself how to knit. I wandered across the site here and fell in love with the demos and recommended it to all my knitting friends.
My issue is.... that I saw the videos on the difference between the knit and purl stitch. (like the person above).
My stitches have the noose. However I'm not doing the purl stitch. I'm doing the knit stitch. I've done several scarves this way and wanted to learn to do the ribbing, but I can't because my knit is a purl and I don't know how I'm doing it wrong.
I have some pictures of one I'm working on - just a plain knit pattern, but you can't see the nooses....
Now... could the knit have a noose instead of a purl because I'm doing garter stitch?
This is my regular stitching also - the only I know with size 7 needles. it's a garter stitch - i know the difference between garter and knit is that you flip the work, correct?
Does the garter stitch have the noose? I watched the video but could not tell b/c the material was white and there was a bit of glare.
please help. want to progress with my skills a little bit and embarrassed I've been doign it wrong all along!
ps. it has the noose on both sides, not just one side.
