I decided to make my dad a pair of Knitty's Thuja for Christmas. The pattern seemed easy enough, but for some reason, the pattern isn't showing up! It's just a seed stitch rib, but not even my 1x1 rib is showing up. Can anyone help me? There is a picture below of what they look like so far, you can't even tell where I changed from the 1x1 to the seed stitch. This is my first pair of socks, so there is probibly just something I don't understand about sock knitting (they're on double pointed needles, not circs).



See...no ribbing! Ahhh!

Maybe I'm not seeing it right, but it looks like that's a tube of stockinette.

umm i don't see any purls - only knit - the way it is curling at the bottom makes me wonder about your 1x1 ribbing?

oO

You're knitting in a round, right? Soo >_> uh I'd frog it, try knitting with the yarn for a couple of rows in the 1x1.

:/ maybe you'll see something you weren't doing before when you try it as flat knitting

Are you purling at all for your rib? I've made (well, am in the process of making) Thuja and I had no trouble at all with the rib. Like Duckie said, that looks like stockinette. Is this your first time doing rib in the round?

Yah, I've never worked in the round. If I remember correctly, arn't you supposed to knit the knits and purl the purls? Because that's what I've been doing and you can't even tell the difference between the knits and purls! I've been knitting long enough to know the two basic stitches, I'm just stumped as to how to fix this and knitting group is still a week away!!

Can you see the purl stitches when you stretch the cuff? Ribbing can get cozy with itself.

Instead of purls, it looks like somehow every other stitch is just a twisted knit.  Are you purling or are you knitting into the back of the stitch?

Probabaly not want you want to hear but I'd definately agree with lemonadelemonade that somehow you are ending up with a twisted stitch instead of a purl. I can clearly see that the yarn is seated differently on every other stitch at the top of the sock (where the 1x1 rib should be).

I did many things that I was certain were correct then I checked out knittinghelp.com for a stitch I didn't know and found out some of those things I KNEW I really didn't.

Here is there page on purling - knittinghelp.com
