Twisted knit stitches
Help! When I knit my knit stitches are twisted, but when I purl they're fine. Am I casting on wrong? Any ideas??

Check out the videos at the top of the page to see if you are placing your needle as Amy does in the videos. That will give you info if you are knitting into the back which is one possibility. And check out to see if you doing what's called combination knitting. There are tips there to help you get it all straight! :teehee:

I had the same problem. I was doing what they call is a true purl.
To correct that you can knit your knit sitiches from your back loop.
