How do you hold yarn when knitting UK?

Does it matter which way you wrap the yarn when knitting?

The most likely culprit is that you are wrapping your yarn the wrong way around your needle on either the knit side, the purl side, or both. You should always wrap the yarn counterclockwise around your needle.

Where should yarn be when knitting?

Putting your yarn in its place (front/back)

You know that your yarn should be in the back for knitting and the front for purling… but what were you doing? Here, I was knitting, and holding the yarn in the back is the right way to go. This means that you are holding the yarn on the wrong side of the needles.
