Yarn overs and circular needles
I'm a relatively inexperienced knitter, and am attempting to knit a simple cotton shopping bag. The pattern calls for circular needles, so that's what I started it on. Once the bottom is knit in a square, stitched are picked up all around to begin the body, followed by a round of K1, YO. No trouble so far, but then... the body pattern is (Row 1) K2T, YO and (Row 2) YO, K2T. I got the first row done, but found that moving the stitches around the circular needle (and this is on 13's) got them all tied up. I'm now laboriously pulling the stitches up onto the left needle one by one, because I can't just get into the rhythm and knit around. Have to stop about every 5-6 stitches and carefully "skritch" more stitches onto the needle.
I have no idea why this is happening - but if anyone has a suggestion or solution before I frog the darn thing, I'd sure appreciate it!
