you have to bring the yarn to the front between the needles, then back to the back between the needles... if you go over the needles, you are doing a yarn over and creating an extra stitch.

No questions are dumb--we've all had the same ones at one time or another!

Oh I don't know, asking a question for which there is a sticky at the top of the category is pretty dumb. I don't know how I missed it.

Don't worry... i think that's a new sticky - well i'll stand by that anyway, cause i've never seen it before

you wouldn't be the first one guilty of not looking at the sticky topics (or forgetting what they are cause you never look at them beyond the first time)

Also, check out the videos on this site. It is extremely helpful to be able to see something done instead of just reading about it. Good luck!

Yes, that's how I realized it.
I used to make the exact same mistake, and it was really frustrating. Seeing the individual knitting and purling videos didn't help, but she explains it in the video showing you about going from knitting to purling. I'm just glad I kind of knew an answer to someone's questions. As a newbie knitter, this is a very exciting first! :-)

I had this exact same problem when I was trying the seed stitch. I started with 20, then along the way I realized I had almost 30 stitches! I was messing up when I switched back and forth from knit to purl.
