Bamboo Yarn

help!! knitting a scarf?

I just now started knitting, and I'm using a bamboo yarn. I can't remember what it's called exactly but it's fairly thin and fuzzy. I bought 5mm needles because on the package it said that's the size best for that yarn, and when i started knitting I had the thickness i wanted for a scarf for about two rows, and then for some reason it got thicker and thicker, and now the rows can barely fit on the needles because it's so thick. It basically grew like 2 inches thicker, and the stitches are as close together when i look at it as they were first, so it's not that they are stretched out. Why did it get this way? Is there any way to reverse this without starting completely over?

If you want it to look nice, yes you should start over. The best thing you could do is make a test swatch a few inches wide and a few inches long, Then take a ruler and see how many stiches are in one inch and use that information to decide how many stiches wide you want your scarf to be. If it got suddenly wider after so few rows it is very probable that at the beginning when you cast on you did it too too tight stretching it as you did it. You aways wnat to cast on a little loose. It might be a good idea to count your stiches each row for a little bit till you get some practice. There are diffent methods for casting on, The easiest is the wrap but it is harder to get tension correct, i use the knit cast on method. I found a site that has diagrams for both for you to look at, The yarn you are using is not really a good yarn to learn on so it might take a little more practice to make it come out right Good luck and have fun
