I'm new to knitting, very new! I just started on Monday because I decided I needed a more constructive hobby than computer games or just reading all the time.
I am using the website and several books and have decided to teach myself the contintental style because it feels more comfy and natural to me. I can cast on and knit the first row no problem but I somehow manage to increase my stiches by one stich for each subsequent row. I'm going to keep watching the knit and garter stich video's ( the garter stitch video shows amy going from one row to the next) and hope something clicks.
One thing i did notice is that for some reason my last stitch ends in a funny double loop where amy's doesn't. I keep practicing but am not sure what i'm doing to cause this, maybe wrapping the yarn around wrong? I've tried doing it differently... If anyone can help me on this I'd appreciate it. It would be nice to be able to make a square instead of cresents all the time!!
Thanks for your help!
