I am knitting sweater with this stitch and have made mistake, notice doesn’t look right. I tried google to be able to tell the difference in each row of the Four row pattern in order to know where I would be in the pattern if I frog the last 3 rows. Any help would really be appreciated, Thanking you, Margaret.

You might want to look at one, or more, of the youtubes and pix-and-text tutorials on "reading your stitches." It is a very useful and important skill to have in your knitting toolbox. It can save you much time and aggravation, as well as frogging-and-reknitting frustrations. And it is easier to learn than you might think. Hang in there! We all had to start somewhere, and learn one step at a time.

You can list the 4 row repeat so we can help you. There are really 2 ways to knit this pattern but do you have an even or odd stitch count?

Version 1: Row 1: K1, P1, across
Row 2: K1, P1, across
Row 3: P1, K1, across
Row 4: P1, K1, across
Repeat these 4 rows


Version 2: Row 1: K1, P1, across
Row 2: P1, K1, across
Row 3: P1, K1, across
Row 4: K1, P1, across
Repeat these 4 rows.

After every repeat, run a life-line.

Thank you, yes I did what you suggested but there wasn’t anything on Irish Moss stitch, just seem to be on plain knitting or purl.

My mistake is that I lost track of what row I was on and now since I can’t tell by looking at the knitting

K1, P1 rpt to last st and K1
P1 K1 P1 to end
P1,K1 rapt to last stitch P1
K1, P1, K1 to end

Irish moss stitch is my favourite border. It truly is very simple and don't be discouraged as it takes a few rows before you see the pattern start to show. So I always use even number of stitches and the trick is to only repeat the same row twice so i recommend you mark down on paper each row. For example first stitch for row one k, row 2 k, row 3 p, row 4 p and as you progress check off each row. So write down a column repeating these 4 rows and check off as you proceed. I've knit this pattern for many projects so I now can recognize what my next row will be by looking at the last row. Try using the chart as I have suggested and you will be fine. Hope this helps.

Thank you, I have already knitted about 12 inches of the pattern and lost track of the row and I can’t tell by looking at the rows which one of the four row pattern I last worked.

I bet if you post a picture of your work, someone could "read" the last row you knitted and tell you which row to knit next. Good luck!

Here's an article about reading stitches: https://www.interweave.com/article/knitting/how-to-read-your-knitting/?k=BSY5%2Fj10Rm8GNFn7QSqULcKzM7zFQ8fREfcfOQVjc2A%3D&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=kd-jre-nl-190220&cid=DM104126&bid=1034906982

A KPer posted this article earlier this week.

If you could post a picture of the stitches on your needles, maybe someone could tell you which row you are on.
