I am learning to knit with circular needles. It is a simple cowl pattern with yarn overs and psso's . I marked my beginning spot with a marker. My problem comes when I put my knitting down and then resume knitting again. I pay attention to my marker, making sure it is facing away from me, on the knitted side of the cowl. (the way I marked it.) , but on 2 occasions now, I think I have somehow ended up knitting in the wrong direction. I'm not quite sure how this is happening. Both times, I ended up taking out at least 4 or 5 rows and starting over. Once the same thing happened. I'm trying to figure out how to remedy this problem. Any suggestions?
