If you knit a lot of garter stitch or rib, it can be difficult to recognise an even numbered row.
Where possible, always join a new ball at the beginning of the row.
So what is all that strange information on the ball band? Let’s de-mystify it and find out what is important.
A friend gave me this one.
The first thing to understand is that the stitches in your knitting are not square. They are actually wider than they are deep.
We’ve all done it – a serious mistake 5 rows back which means you have to take the knitting off and rip it back.
