I'm working on this pattern
. The first 8 rows involve using 2 place markers to show where to increase. I don't have any markers, so I just used a couple pieces of scrap yarn instead.
My problem (if it is a problem?) is after finishing those rows, removing the markers and doing the next few plain garter stitch rows, I noticed that I have a V-shaped pattern of holes... I'm guessing from where I knit the stitch following the marker? Is that normal, or was I doing something wrong? It's the first time I've ever used a marker knitting. Thanks!
