Expanding knitting

Hi All,

I’ve just started knitting and I’m making a scarf with bobble wool. The problem is that my stitches are ever-expanding, so I can’t put them all on the needle. I started with 36 but they keep mysteriously mulitplying.

Can somebody please help me?!


I’m not sure what bobble wool is, but it sounds like it’s hard to learn on. The best yarn to learn on is a light colored, smooth, worsted weight yarn.

At the top of this page there is a thread called “Mysterious Extra Stitches” that you should check out. It’s common for new knitters to have this problem.
