Helloo! I am in need of your help, whoever can help me. I've just started knitting again after years of lapse and I'm having this issue that I can't remember having.. the join yarn between the two needles.. JUST KEEPS GROWING. How do I make that stop? Hopefully it's something really simple that I've just completely spaced out on. Thanks for your help in advance!
Okay, what you do is before you start the actual project make a test scarf, i always ask myself what could happen and how i could fix it, i must say i think there is a video for that, but thats me :knitting:
-Thank me if i helped
I FOUND THE VIDEO,
don't CLICK ON VIDEO, OPTIONS WILL APPEAR THEN CLICK TIPS SCROLL A BIT DOWN THEN YOU'LL SEE JOIN YARN VIDEOS THERE A COUPLE
-THANK ME IF I HELPED
Ohhh, I didn't mean that kind of "join".. mm.. I guess a better word would just be the connecting yarn? It's just.. the yarn between my needles, I'm not trying to change colors or anything like that yet.
It sounds like you are a loose knitter. You may be keeping your stitches too far back on the needles and having to use more yarn in order to slide stitches off. You may not be holding enough tension as you feed the yarn to your needles.Without seeing what you're doing I don't have any other suggestions.Practice always helps.
thats what i said
Thank you, I'll look at some of the things you mentioned.
Is it just on the first row after the Cast on, or on later rows? If it's on the first row and you're using the backward loop cast on, that really makes a lot of slack in the yarn, so try another CO.
Ooh, suzeeq, I think this might be -exactly- what I've been doing! Thank you so much! Oh, and yes, it's just in the first row.
Try knitted, cable or longtail cast on, they're a lot snugger. Also, are you using yarn that's too thin for your needles?
I think the yarn size is fine (meaning all right, not thin, haha) because I tried longtail and it was just peachy after that. Thank you again.
