This is very likely a DUMB question, but I'm going to ask it anyways. Every time I try to knit a pattern (like an anchor or a heart motif) using just knit and purl in the same color of yarn, it doesn't show up. I mean it does, but I feel like in the books it always seems to really pop out clearly and in my attempts it's almost unnoticeable... I hope that makes sense. Are there any tips or tricks for making those kinds of motifs pop out the way they do in pattern books???
Thanks so much!
