Why is my French knitting so tight?
The problem with this is that when it’s time to pull the bottom loop over the top some people pull on the loop too much and that tightens the loop next to it. As you continue around the loom pulling on loops you tighten all the loops. Some people pull the loops on the pegs to loosen the stitch.
Why is my loom knitting so tight?
If you wrap all the way around the loom, there is a great chance that you will pull the yarn making it tighter as you go. Keep the yarn between the loom and skein loose. If you don’t, you may use the loom to pull the yarn which will make the stitch too tight. Hold the previous peg while wrapping the current peg.
How tightly should you cast on knitting?
Everyone knits differently. Although patterns call for a needle of a certain size, you may find that you cast on more tightly or loosely than a project specifies. If your cast-on stitches are too tight, many people recommend casting on with needles one or two sizes larger than the needles called for in the pattern.
