Weird Wind Knots

I was practicing my casting the other day and kept getting these weird wind knots. I was using 4 lb. Triline mono tied to a small piece of plastic ribbon. The leader kept twisting into these long braided knots 3 to 6 inches long. I just had to pull straight apart and let the leader spin for a minute and it would be corrected. This would happen after only one or two casts. The wind was almost non-existant. I'm not sure if this is a casting error I'm making or something with that perticular spool of mono.
