I am knitting a pair of mittens for the first time. This is also the first time I am using double pointed needles. I knitted the first mitten fine but am having issues with the second one. It seems that I am getting some weird gap in my stitch. It happens on the first stitch on the needle. You can feel this gap when you run your hand over it. Does anyone know how this happens? I have started it over twice and can't figure out what I am doing wrong.
