I'm a bit of a newb knitter. I've mastered the basics and have really even tension, but theres something I just don't get.
To me this seems incredibly basic, and imperative to know in order to do any advanced pattern, but how the heck do you knit a row after having knit AND purled in the above row? Wherever I have changed from knitting to purling there are three stitches twisted together where there should be two seperate ones, and when I change from purl to knit there is an extra loose stitch. I've looked on every knitting help site I could find, thinking it should be a beginer thing like learning how to do stockinette, but this just never comes up or is covered! Please help, this is getting frustrating and I don't have time to go to the local yarn store.
I'm using the regular western method of knitting, just incase that matters. Thanks for any help!
