I’ve been knitting for a couple of months now. I’ve knitted a washcloth and am now working on a baby blanket for a coworker’s nephew. I’ve been working on this blanket for a while. The pattern for the blanket only calls for Garter stitches and requires switching needles between sizes 13 and 3.5 and stitching 7 rows on each size needle. I’ve got up to so far and keep on redoing it. The reason for that is because whenever I knit on the size 13 needle, there’s always an excess yarn on the Wrong side (the back side that’s not facing me). At first, I didn’t think anything of it but then when it got to the end of the row, the excess yarn was too much that slipping it off, without knitting the first stitch, and tightening it doesn’t really help. So, I’m VERY frustrated this is happening to me. :crying:
I know this isn’t normal because when I saw someone else knitting, this doesn’t happen to them. Please tell me how to avoid/prevent having the excess yarn on the WR. I’m very frustrated on how to fix this problem.
Please all – help me.
Thank you in advance,
