OK, brand new knitter here!
I started this dishcloth tonight and can't figure out what I am doing wrong!
When I was doing row 4 I noticed I was knitting my knits and purling my purls which I didn't think was right if I was trying to create a seed stitch as the cloth description indicates is being used. I thought to create seed stitch you purled your knits and knitted your purls. I looked it up and found I was right in my thinking.
So, I figured I goofed up a stitch in the mix somewhere and carried on. When I came to the next set of rows 3 & 4 the same thing happened. I still carried on for a bit more and then decided to frog it.
I started again but this time when I got to row 4 I K2, *P1,K1 repeated from * and knit the last 2. This is giving me a seed stitch. It is hard to tell what the cloth is really supposed to look like from the small picture but I know I am doing a seed stitch now - at least I believe I am!
My question - did I read the pattern wrong in my initial attempt? Or is the pattern goofy? I suspect strongly that it is me, but I can't for the life of me figure out what I did.
TIA for your help.
