Hello and welcome!

There certainly is! Best way i can help is if you post a photo of the stitches on your hook at each end

Well I think I guessed right I was on a return pass. As it looked OK on the next row, :slightly_smiling_face: but it would be great to know in case I forget again :wink:, not sure if this is showing what you want to see? I’m currently on a forward pass
“yarn over, then inserting through next two loops, yo, rep”
The shawl is getting big now so didn’t take a pic of the finished forward pass, but please let me know if you need more…

Ahh just re read your msg, **ends!! ** I’ll take more pics when I’m on my next round, sorry :roll_eyes:

Ok, new pics. Hope they are what you actually wanted :grin:

Ok this photo here is half way through a forward pass (FwdP). I can see this because:

  1. the row below is is a completed row - not part of the row you are working on right now.
  2. If you were to start a RetP right now, you would be making a short row!
  3. you haven’t gone all the way to the end of the row I can see on your hook.

Thanks for replying Abbey,
I understand mostly but hopefully will see it more with time
I took a pic of a return pass this is half way through, so if I put this down and came back to it and say I forgot which way I was going, I’m not sure I’d know it was a return. Looks to be the same as my first pic I posted…?

Nope! It’s different.
Here’s why:
The blue line is the row you’re currently working a RetP on.
The yellow line is the completed row directly underneath. Can you see the difference now?

Sorry I assumed you were working on the round which is why I wanted the ends. You’re working flat so the ends won’t help here. Sorry!

Thank you again, I think I’m seeing it more now.
Much appreciated.
I will keep watching the difference to get it to sink in :+1::slightly_smiling_face:

Apologies I should have been clearer what I was doing Hehe

@Abbeymade where would you recommend looking for video tutorials for the more complicated stitches?

Howdy,
Just YouTube will probably get you something. It would depend on the stitches you want to learn.

A few recommendations would be Knitter Knotter and Rachel Henri. Both have blogs. Rachel is more technical and experimental while Arunima (Knitter Knotter) has focussed on introducing beginners to new things.
