Yarn Gets Twisted! Make it stop!

I am in the middle of knitting my first afgahan. When I’m knitting, my yarn starts to twist up. Why does this happen and How can I get it to stop?! It makes it very hard to knit and yarn is not used evenly. Thanks for your help.


Are you knitting with 2 strands or one? either way, usually it’s because when you reach the end of a row, you may tend to turn in the same direction each time and the yarn can kink up. So alternate directions, and you can let the work hang while you hold up the twisted yarn and let it untwist. Or let the ball/skein dangle and untwist that way.
