So I’m trying to make socks, and I’m having trouble joining my stitches. I knit the first stitch to join it, the pull it tight to make sure it doesn’t get loose, and then I continue on with the rest of my pattern. But when I complete one row and go back to that first stitch to start the second row, i see that the first stitch and the last stitch were not joined properly. There’s like…a single thread connecting them, but that’s it. At first I ignored it and just kept on knitting in the round, but after 3 rows, I noticed that the first and last stitch were not joined at all. What am I doing wrong?
I repeated this 4 times already. At first I thought it was because I pulled the tail of the cast on, and the next time I was extra careful not to touch it, but that didn’t help. I was able to join a round once, and I have no idea what I did to do it, and now I can’t do it again
