If you’ve struggled with messy edges on your knitting projects, you’re not alone. Knitting the first stitch of a row is tricky to get just right. I like to keep the edges of my project neat by slipping the first stitch of every row. This slipped stitch is then knit (or purled) when you work back on the next row.
Some people strive for their projects to look as perfect as possible while other choose to embrace the imperfections of hand knitting.
Do you have any tricks for keeping your knitting neat? Or do you let the stitches fall where they may instead?
