Question about changing yarn and starting a new row and stitch
I am supposed to change to a new color of yarn and then kfb, sl 1 purlwise wyib, k1 repeat to last st, k 1, (1 st increased)
I can't get this row started at all, because the stitches fall apart from the start. The new yarn does not stay in place at all.
I admit to being a beginning knitter, but the instructions seem fairly simple. The pattern is from mairlynd.de/ (?) It's a shawl worked flat from the upper right tip towards the left edge. I am not smart enough to add a picture to this!
I would appreciate any help you could offer! I am really stumped!
Thanks so much!
If I am understanding you correctly the pattern is telling you to knit into the front, back and front of the first stitch on your needle?
Normally what I do is to anchor the ends of both yarns with my right hand as I start knitting the row and then tie the two ends together after 10 stitches or so.
If this does work for you, it might be a good idea to tie the new yarn to the tail of the old yarn and slip the knot up close to the first stitch before you start knitting the row.
