Knee to Chest

In observing class today, I noticed the struggle for some to bring their leg through from Down Dog to Warrior 1. It was in the sweep of stepping one foot between the hands without floating the knee outside the ribs, by-passing the knee to chest movement. What happens? Tight hamstrings? Weakness of abs? Weakness of hip flexors? Habit? Large chest?
All can be the answer or just one. Practice the movement of drawing the knee foward to the chest and aim the foot forward! Try not to open the hip. Then keep practicing!
