Learn how to read a knitting pattern. In this guide I will use a new beginner pattern I published a few days ago and go through it step by step. It's a set of three dishcloths and it is available for free.
I have designed three dishcloth patterns that only require knit and purl stitches, and they are available here for free! They are ideal for learning how to read your knitting - that is, to recognize a purl stitch from a knit stitch.
