Hi, I've tried continental style knitting several times. I can do it, it is faster, but my yarn always splits when it sits on the new needle. Any ideas?
Make sure you're going through the whole stitch with your needle, chances are you're splitting the yarn as you're knitting - it's really easy to do!
no, the whole stitch comes over, the yarn separates (maybe I'm describing it incorrectly). When I throw, the yarn stays together.
Could you be untwisting the ply somehow? I know I do it when I use long tail cast on so possible?
could be because that is what is happening . maybe practice will make perfect. thx
If you can post a picture we might be able to help more, it's hard to tell without seeing it lol!
