Another knitting post today I'm afraid - but don't worry I have some sewing stuff queued up to post about so this should hopefully be the last knitting post for a little while. However today I was hoping that there's someone out there that knows what I'm doing wrong with my knitting. I've just been practicing my knitting and purling but knitting up some stocking stitch on some big needles. However when I looked closely at my work I'm doing something wrong on some of my purl rows, and I have no idea what it is. I was hoping that by posting a picture someone might see it and be able to tell me what I'm doing wrong.
Can you see that in the lower rows the yarn just does a loop, whereas in a few of the rows it does a kind of twist when it's looping? I've outlined the rows in the image below, in green how it's supposed to be, and in red how the "wrong" rows are:
From counting back I'm pretty sure this is happening on my purl rows, but not on all of them - one of them of 6 doesn't have it. (But it's entirely possible that it's on my knit rows and I've counted wrong, either way it's on alternating rows). Any ideas?
(Thanks in advance!)
EDIT: I think I worked it out - I think I was wrapping the yarn around the needle the wrong way on the knit stitches. Those in the know, does that sound right?
