I'm a beginner knitter and am making a simple scarf to practice cables. Occasionally, a long strand of yarn will run through a cable horizontally and I don't know why this is happening! I've attached a photo and circled the places where it's happened so you can see. It only happens on one side too.
I'm also wondering why, in this 2x2 pattern, there is more space on the right side of each cable. Is it because I'm knitting so tightly?
I know the knitting doesn't look very good -- sorry! I'm learning!
