View Full Version : Funky Edges when doing stockinette

I'm a newbie...whenever I am knitting in St st my edges are mishapen and the stitches vary in size. Is there anything I should be doing when turning from right side to wrong side?

You can slip the first stitch and knit the last. Here's a thread (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11897) about it that was just started. Stockinette does roll though so unless you are putting a border on something or want the rolled look it will be a problem. There is a post at the top of this forum about it.
AND... practice will help with wonky stitches and tension. Keep practicing and don't keep ripping..just keep going and you'll see a difference in that one piece.
