Loose and stretched stitches...need help.
I am a novice knitter and I am attempting using my first real pattern in the form of a dishcloth. The problem is that the first few and last few stitches are terribly loose and out of shape compared to the rest of the dishcloth...I have this problem with scarves as well but not to such a degree. I might add that I am experimenting with round needles. I would appreciate any help on this.
