This is my first time knitting socks, using Judy’s magic cast on on circulair needles.
I have tried using this method as well as the turkish cast on, and I keep running into the same problem. I’m not sure if it’s even a problem at all because it is not mentioned in any tutorial that I come across, but it bothers me to no end and I can’t help feeling that I’m doing something wrong.
The problem is as follows; whenever I have knitted all the cast on stitches on the bottom needle and the top needles, I begin knitting as one normally would according to the instructions that I have come across. Meaning; pull the bottom needle in front and slide the stiches on to the cord etc.
As I go along and come unto the end of the stitches and try to repeat the procces by flipping the needles, the working yarn is on the wrong needle. This causes there to be a vertical line of yarn as I pull the working yarn towards the now upper needle.
This looks really bad and I get the idea that influences the flexibility of the work.
So tell me knitters, am I doing something wrong?
-A very confused beginner :think:
Ps. I am talking about toe up socks in this case
