Question: How do you hold your yarn?

Why does my yarn untwist when I crochet?

Because the yarn is wrapped around the crochet hook (yarn over) in the opposite direction of the knit yarn over, and because crochet stitches have height and may contain multiple yarn overs each time, crochet tends to un-twist the S-Twist.

THIS IS FUN:  Should I buy an antique sewing machine?
