Well the loop stitch has been knitted! A BIG thank you to For the Knit of It for the You Tube link to the stitch.
The problem I had was that between each loop stitch was a regular knit stitch. This made the work to loose and the loop stitches kept turning into be holey stitches. I modified the pattern and knit a loop stitch in each stitch with a row of knitted stitches between each of the 4 rows of loops. It looks just like pattern. Don’t be afraid to modify a pattern. I am now moving on to the hood part of the Scoodie. I hope to complete this before I start my Knitting Marathon on January 21 & 22.
