When casting on, always leave yourself enough yarn to make it all the way through the stitches you need to cast on the needle. When joining a second or third ball of yarn, try to join them at the edges rather than in the middle of a row. Then your seams will be hidden in the sides and it just looks so much neater. When knitting off of a chart or directional rows, always use a sticky note to keep your place. The sticky little note can be moved down the page as you go. When knitting with a ball of yarn, always pull the yarn from the center and not the outside. If you do this, your yarn will flow nicely and not become a monster tangled mess as you knit.
If you do encounter a knotted mess, simply cut the mess out, then attach your yarn again.
Secrets of Spinning, Weaving, and Knitting | The Woolery
Some knots are impossible to untangle! If you want to change colors rather than knit all in one color, then do it!
Be creative. If you wish to add a stitch pattern to a project, and you know how to do that, then do it! Variations on a theme are always welcome. When you work on a pattern that is written for 2 or 3 sizes, always circle or highlight the size that you are knitting for. Do that all the way through the pattern. New to knitting? Take my word for it! Keep all those knitting accessories to a minimum.
Needles, yarn, scissors and instructions will do the job every time. If your yarn makes it, you have enough for another row.
