Loop on last stitch on needle, where' it coming from?

When I finish a row there is a big loop on the top where the last stitch went on to the needle.

What am I doing to cause this?

Thanks,
Genny

The last stitch is usually loose, since it is only attached on one side to another stitch. It’s probably the most asked-about thing from new knitters. You can make a point to keep your yarn tight for the first few stitches of the next row to tighten it up, or you can slip the first stitch of each row without knitting it to make a less loose edge.

Thanks, It seems I have a lot of questions.

Couldn’t do it without the help of the people on this forum.
