I’m a newbie and I’m teaching myself to knit. This is my first scarf and I’m having a problem with stitches adding themselves. I originally cast on 24 stitches and have somehow increased to 43. My scarf, however, does not look like it has almost doubled in width. In fact, It doesn’t look like the width has changed at all. I’m just using a garter stitch (the one with just knitting and no purling). I’m sure I’m probably going to have to take it apart, but I was wondering how to prevent this in the future. Even when I’m counting stitches as I go, it seems to stay the same for one row and then 2 get added on the next. I was also wondering if there is a correct way to disasemble my scarf. Any help would be much appreciated, especially in written form as I do not have a computer compatible to watch the tutorials.
