I’m knitting a scarf in seed stitch. This is my first project. I got to the end of my ball of yarn and added a new one using the method where you hold two yarns (old one and new one) together. It seemed to work and I went on knitting about a third of the length of scarf when I realized that the seed stitch pattern looked strange. I compared it to the beginning part of the scarf, which was a perfect seed stitch. This newer part was messy and the motif really uneven. So I went back and frogged, frogged, frogged…till I got back to the part where the pattern was still correct. I started again, adding the yarn and knitting on. I noticed the same thing, and I’m sure it has something to do with my adding the new yarn, because that’s where the motif starts to deform.
Could someone please help me find the problem? I’m so frustrated with all the frogging and still not being able to identify the problem! I’m knitting the purls and purling the knits as I should. And I can SEE that they are knits and purls. But, I must say, there’s something weird about the shape. The yarn looks like it’s slanted.
Maybe I should try another method of adding the yarn? For example, by simply tying a knot?
Thanks in advance!
