I searched and found instructions on how to do Row three of the Calorimetry.

Quote
Sl 1, work 3 sts, place marker, work to last 2 sts, turn work.

I followed the advice of slipping 1 purlwise, then knitting two, then purling one, placing the marker, then purling one, and then continuing the k2p2.

My ribbing turned all wonky after that.

Please help!!!

Are you continuing to knit/ purl into the appropriate stitches? One of the most useful skills to acquire is to 'read' your knitting, and being able to differentiate between k/p is relatively simple.

Though I'm sure we all have our own ways, I think of the knit stitch as the "forward" look, and the purl as the backside; knit stitches look like the typical interlocking V and create the "forward" look, and when you knit you are throwing the backside away from you. When I encounter one of the bumps, or "backsides" of the stitch, I know I need to purl.

If you knew all this already, sorrry Wink.

I can't remember from when I knit this, but depending on where the short rows are you may need to k/p 1 and then continue in pattern; perhaps if you need to turn halfway through one of the rib columns.

I believe I am knitting and purling in the right stitches.

I can't remember from when I knit this, but depending on where the short rows are you may need to k/p 1 and then continue in pattern; perhaps if you need to turn halfway through one of the rib columns.

I'm going to try purling after my slip 1 and see if that works.

Thanks! Smiley
