Some good suggestions have been given. About the cutting width, when using a light weight fabric a narrower cutting width can be used but with heavier fabric a wider cutting width is usually needed.
I would suggest to cut off more of the fabric's edge and maybe tighten your lower looper a bit.
If you still have some loops on the edge after making adjustments then maybe try using only the left needle and see if that helps. Good luck to you.
There should be a knob on the side of your machine that adjusts the cutting with. This knob moves the knife to the right or left. If the width is too narrow for your fabric, loops will fall off the edge. If the width is too wide, the loops will curl the fabric.
Look at your serger manual to find out how to adjust the cutting width.

okay, it was lightweight fabric, so now i know I should have used a narrower seam. and its probably time I got a knew knife anyways.
