I can't get past 3 rows. My stitches become tight as I approach the middle of my second or third rows and the rows start wrapping around the working needle like a stake around a branch. When I try to straighten it, it gets tight.
What am I doing wrong? I am using 4mm needles and DK yarn, albeit both are very cheap.
Is it the way I hold the needle? Am I pulling on the yarn? There is something I may be doing wrong that is not addressed in beginners' instructions.
(apologies if this appears somewhere else, I may be duplicating accidentally)
