You asked: Why is my knitting too loose?

How do you prevent a loose stitch?

This common phenomenon occurs in knitting when transitioning from a knit stitch to a purl stitch. To minimize the loose stitch, purl the first stitch after the knit column by wrapping the yarn clockwise around the needle.

How do you prevent stitches from getting loose?

I have found that loose sutures can be prevented by doing a running locking suture. This maintains tension on the suture material, is simple to do, and obviates the need to “buff up” the repair after the fact.

Why is my first row of knitting so loose?

The first row of knitting is usually loose because your work needs more rows before it tightens. It also usually has something to do with your tension or cast-on method. Remember that it is always best to practice your knitting to get better tension.

Does it matter which way you wrap the yarn when knitting?

The most likely culprit is that you are wrapping your yarn the wrong way around your needle on either the knit side, the purl side, or both. You should always wrap the yarn counterclockwise around your needle.
