My name is Jen, and I live in TX. I’ve been wanting to learn to knit for a while, and even took a class, but the teacher wasn’t all that great. So I’m trying to teach myself using the videos here.
Since I am also a crocheter, I am trying to learn the Continental method. I can do the long tail cast on, and I think I’ve finally figured out the knit stitch. But for some reason the last stitch on my needle looks wonky when I get to the end.
I know I’m having issues with my tension, I’m casting on way too tight. But generally the stitches are pretty even across until the last one. When I knit the last stitch (this is the very first knit row after the cast on) it’s very loose and floppy, with yarn dangling along the bottom. When I try knitting a few more rows, it almost looks like I’m missing stitches or something on that end…it’s all loose and floppy, and almost looks shorter than the rest of the piece.
I hope I’m making sense. I don’t know enough about knitting to even really describe what’s going on. lol… Thanks!
