I'm working on the scarf from issue 1 of hand knit heroes and I'm having trouble with my ribbing. The ribbed pattern is
Row 1: *P2, K4* to last 2 sts, P2
Row 2: *K2, P4* to last 2 sts, K2
In between the purl and knit sections I am getting wide ladders that, while I could ignore and pretend that it is my own designer influence, I really don't care for.
I've tried tightening my tension, but that didn't help.
I read something about being able to knit into the back leg of the purl stitch to fix the problem, but I don't want to try it and have to frog the whole thing because I remembered wrong. I figure someone wiser than I will have the solution.
Any help that does not include combined knitting would be most appreciated. I have tried it and it made me want to rip out my hair in frustration. Thanks!
