I started making a small bag - knitting in the round. I've gotten about 12 rows done and realized that my stitch got twisted and now my stitches aren't hanging straight all the way around. There is a twist in the middle! Is there a way to correct this without taking the whole thing out??
That kind of makes sense to me because as I get to the bottom and decrease my stitches it will go away, right? The bag I am making is like an upside down hat - It will have a rounded bottom and a drawstring closure at the top...

Yes ! that is exactly what has happened - the mobius effect - although it's not intentional!! Do I start over or will it go away? As I round out the bottom by decreasing my stitches will it diminish or just end up a bigger problem?
If you've truly twisted the cast on then there is nothing that will make it go away short of starting over. One way to avoid a twisted cast on is to knit a few rows flat and then join. It's easier to keep the stitches straight that way.
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
