New knitter, Large loops?


#1

Hi, the name is Janel. I am fresh to the knitting community. If someone could point me in the right direction for the issues I seem to be having.
I know how to cast on, but when I get to knitting my loops/knit stitches are large loops and for the life of me I cannot figure out why or how to remedy it.

I suspect it might be your cast on. Which one are you using? If you’re using backward loop try something else as it tends to be problematic for more than a few stitches. I suggest the knitted cast on or long tail. Long tail is the one I use 99% of the time, but it does take practice. Here’s a few links and you can also look on this site or YouTube.

I use the long tail method. I will post a photo later of what it looks like.
Thank you!!
