I'm a real newbie - just started knitting this week.
I've mastered how to knit and purl (sort of) :D , but I just can't do the knit one, purl one thing and I need to do it for the pattern I'd like to do!! I'm fine on the first row, but when I get to the second row I just get stuck.
Am I supposed to be doing the same stitch that I have on the first row? So if there's a knit above, should I be doing a knit stitch, or a purl stitch??
Secondly, I'm fine doing purl stitches, but I always seem to get them really tight around the needle and really struggle to get the next row of knitting on there because I can barely get the needle into the stitch! What am I doing wrong? I'm fine with the knit stitch though...
