Knots are too long for alpha bracelets by beabeabea 14 days ago

Hi everyone! I've been trying lately to make alpha bracelets, but it seems the shape of each individual knot I make is too long. This makes the pattern distorted (i tried making a solar system pattern, my planets came out oblong instead of round T___T)
How do I fix this? I tried making tighter, more square knots and it helped some but they still seem to be too long. FYI I use crochet cotton to make bracelets. Thank you in advance!

It is mainly a matter of practicing a lot. Alphas are tricky at first!
Some knots need to be pretty tight, others less tight. That depends on the color-distribution, meaning that you need to knot tighter where more color-changes are.
It also helps to push your rows up now and then, in case your knots look like they stretched a bit vertically.
