Stop Scrunching The Stitches Up On Your Right-Hand Needle

Problem: If you do this, you may notice ten-twenty new stitches stacking up on the tip of your right-hand needle, in front of your fingers. This can slow you down, as your fingers are nowhere near the tips of your needles, helping you knit. Knitters who do this also tend to slow down for fear of losing stitches off the tips of the needles.

Fix: Every time you notice this happening, simply move your right hand up the needle, massaging your new stitches evenly down along the length of the needle, and place your fingers over the stitches.

  1. I used to scrunch my stitches a LOT! Then I noticed how my knitting was looking when I did that, and I had to train my hands to push my stitches down my right needle and smooth them out. Once I did that consistently, my finished projects started looking a LOT smoother, more evened out.
