Hi everyone! I'm new to knitting and have just started my first project w/ a circular needle. It's a scarf knit lengthwise. I can cast on fine and the first few rows look great, but by the 4th row, it starts bunching up. Does the weight of the piece pull the stitches tight on the cable? Am I knitting too tightly? I have no clue what's causing it!?!
I'm not sure what you mean by "bunching up."
I knit flat on circulars all the time, and if you have lots of stitches, they'll gather up on the needle. That's FINE!
If you're knitting in Stockinette stitch, your stitches will curl. This is also NORMAL and you can't do anything about it. I sometimes give my knitting a tug to get the stitches to lay nicely. So I guess what I'm saying is that you're probably doing fine! Hope that helps!
I was so after frogging it 3 times already that I'm sure I could have done that. It just confuses me that it's knit longways, but all rows are affected. I think I'll go get some sleep and give it another go tomorrow.
