OK…I have been having this problem for days now. I am learning to knit. I do my cast on row. Then I stich from there, switch hands and the first stich to go from that time is weird…it’s like it is looser and does the bottom string does not come out in such a way that I can bring it back through (when doing Contiental method). I am very frustrated - can anyone help me. Also, if I count after a while, I have more loops on the top than I started out with…it’s like it is increasing it when I try to start even with the last stich that way.
