[quote=guyknitter;947603]Hi, my name is Edwardo. I’m trying to knit a scarf for my girlfriend in time for the winter. I’m new to knitting, hence starting in August.
I’m using chunky alpaca with needle size 13 for the first time. The last stitch in a row is always a big loose loopy stitch. How can I avoid it?
to take are of that last stitch loopiness, pull it tight, give it a good tug after that stitch is on the right needle.
Also, as I knit the stitches, the yarn between the two needles get longer and longer. What am I doing wrong?
It sounds like you are knitting loosely. I would suggest keeping the stitches you are just about to knit really close to the point of the left needle, and putting them on the right needle right where it gets to it’s full width.-- that way the yarn doesn’t have to be long between the stitches. I would also make sure that the loops you’ve just knit are snug against the needle.
Just my 2 cents.
Good luck, and welcome!
