I have been making winter hats for my family. I have watched the video about knitting in the round on this site, and I have read about it in several books. I cast on my stitches, make sure that the last cast-on stitch is on the right, and the first on the left. I make sure that my stitches are all facing inward and not twisted and then begin to knit.
The pattern calls for several inches of knit 1, purl 1 ribbing on a US 3 needle, then I knit onto a US 6 needle. From there I knit every row and begin the crown decrease.
The problem is that I end up knitting the hat inside-out. All of my purls are on the outside and knits on the inside. Everyone I have spoken to has told me that their knit stitches always wind up on the outside when they work in the round. Does anyone have any idea what I could be doing wrong?
