Just wait longer between casts, there should be a distinct pause between forward and backwards casts. I'm assuming your talking about overhead casting. If your spey casting thats another matter.

As like as knot(a little humour there!),its your loop placements that are causing the problem,don't be scared to cast wide open loops.When casting Double keep the flee well on your downstream side,for a Single,get the flee above and away from you.This way you won't be casting the flee/line into and through itself thus forming a neat overhand knot that works down into your leader!.Trying too hard is the likely culprit,every one does it.Try and keep your forward delivery with your rod in a straight upright plane,again that will send the line out in a straight delivery, casting across your body will also tend to push your line into and through itself again forming a knot.
Just think it through for a moment or two,all you are doing is using your rod to tie a knot in your line,once that sinks in(not easy understanding it)then its an easily solved problem.
