Ahh! I'm about to lose my mind! I'm trying to make a dishcloth (http://joann.lionbrand.com/patterns/kkc-dishCloths.html
) and it calls for you to knit 1 and purl 1 and repeat for a while. I have looked at several websites and in the book I bought to learn to knit to see how to switch from knit to purl and my brain just can't get it! I'm pretty sure I see how to knit and purl but my confusion is with the moving the yarn from front to back when switching between them. First, I was going over the needle and ended up with all sorts of extra stitches. Then I saw something that said move the yarn under the knitting, so now I have this weird long loop that goes under the knitting.
Can anyone tell what I'm doing wrong? I would really appreciate the help.
