The turning effect is all about the yarn.
Shiruku is a single-thread yarn without twist.

Some single thread yarns has this effect on the knitted work.
Why? I guess it depends on the spinning process.
But I wanted to use this, to work with the yarn instead of against it.
If you want it straight you can always block it or choose some another yarn with same tension. F.eks Gima, last picture.
