[Knitting] Holding yarn

[Copy link]

Ok so I finally got flicking motion and I've learned to knit continental style the biggest problem I have when using these methods is holding the yarn between my fingers. I have tried several different ways  of wrapping around my fingers  but I can't seem to keep the right tention, it's either too loose or too taut (I don't have this problem when I throw) Any advise would be much appreciated!

Perhaps loosening your stitches as you go or go up a size in needle, your gauge or tension sample should give you the answer as to the needle question.

I'm using the recommended sized needles, but I'm working with Tahki Ripple which creates a mesh/net type fabric. Could the thinness of the yarn be why I'm having trouble holding on to it?  Post time 2015-12-2 00:49

Hello there is a ring to wear on your finger that holds the yarn this might help you even tension out. Some rings can hold 2 colors

Not a fan of wrapping for tension, I tend to hold the yarn along the needle to tension. Might be a little looser but I usually hit gauge. If I wrap around my pinkie my continental gets to tight. We all find a way that works!
