Do you mean your CO gets loose? Try a different one - knitted, cable or long tail.

Could be the Homespun, too.

If you mean it's loose on the cable, that's ok. The needles determine the size of the stitch.

Exactly what I was going to say.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
