This is the third time this has happened. What on earth is causing the change in tension? The top portion is the way it should be. Same yarn, same tension, same everything. I had decided to accept it the way it is at the bottom even though I knew it was wrong. Now I look down and see this. I can't begin to imagine. T6, punch card 8p. The first time it happened I was using a different card. I'm on row 94 so it isn't the punch card.

Check your mast tension, and be sure the yarn is not catching somewhere.

Although it could be the tensioning or the yarn getting hung up.....it doesn't usually look as consistent as your pic.....
I vaguely recall reading in a maintainance manual that after 24 rows a problem like this was occurring.....and when I multiply 24x4...I get 96 rows....OK....I'm speculating here......Not sure...but I think it had to do with the timing belt.....In order to research this...I need to know what make/model machine you have....

On second thought....I hear KP responders talking about static. Could that be it? I know nothing on that subject.

My machine is Brother 260. The first time it happened the first section was the right section and the last part was weird. Thank you for even pondering the problem. On the second blanket it was after I added a new cake of yarn. This time I thought maybe the added cake was wound too tight so I piled the entire cake loosely in front of the machine. The was never a tug or a tangle while feeding through the machine. Weird!

Have you the same weight on the garment the whole way through - it's just a thought

Is your punh card unit set to normal size stitch or long stitch? Just wondering if the lever has slipped a cog since the knitting looks so even from the top to the bottom half??

If you are encountering static, you could use a dryer sheet and let your yarn run through it.
