I just started knitting today, and am attempting to knit a garter stitch scarf. I was able to cast on perfectly fine but when it comes to actually doing a knit stitch it all falls apart (literally).
I've tried over and over, and can pull the yarn back through the stitch but then it just hangs really loose in a loop, and when I try to slide the stitch from the left needle to my right, it all turns into one long piece of yarn that I have to recast. I've looked at videos and books and just can not seem to figure it out. I've went through the front loop of the stitch, above it, through both parts of the little "x" the stitch makes, everything. I'm at a loss for what I'm doing wrong so if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!
I'm using bulky weight yarn and size 13 needles (recommended on the package).
