    This tutorial is so helpful. An issue I am having, though, in making my first pair of socks with German shirt rows, is that I keep finding dropped stitches when I come back to a spot where I have worked a ds. I think I have everything down about the technique EXCEPT working the ds properly. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
