Help! Purl is coming out as garter stitch!
by Rose Eadle
I am knitting a baby cardi in garter stitch with a raised decorative shaping which should be stocking stitch. You slip 3 stitches purlwise, continue garter stitch and then the next row purl the 3 slipped stitches (all the rest garter) I have tied several times, the 3 stitches just look slightly raised instead of showing a different stitch…
