can someone please help????
hi, new to this board and having trouble, i want to make these puffy slippers in 2 colors. the pattern says cast on 66 st with main color ,then knit 6 in main color then 6 in contrast color across the needle, pulling yarn along back to make the puff
the second row is the part that is causing me the trouble...it says repeat row 1 but carry the unused yarn in front of the work??
HOW do I do this???

When you work across the first row, the yarn will be at the back. When you turn the work to knit or purl across, that yarn will now be at the front automatically.

If your second row is a knit row, then yes your yarn is going to be at the back of your work. You are going to have to move it forward, as you would before working a purl stitch, in order to strand it across the front, then move it backwards to start working your knit stitches again.

True. I didn't consider that the back could be knitted. Just bring the yarn forward between the needles at that point.

just ensure you move it between your needles, not over, or you will create extra stitches this way
