I’m starting to do knit and purl combos. And when I change from knit to purl in the same row the yarn crosses over on the needle so that it looks like an X instead of a regular loop on the needle. Is this the way that it’s supposed to look or am I doing something wrong?
Also with the long-tail cast on, when I do it I end up with 3 pieces of yarn looped around the needle instead of the one it shows in the video. I thought that I was doing the same thing as the video for it but now I’m not sure what I’m doing. Any advice?
