I'm kind of a beginner at this. I'm knitting a baby blanket in the round with 2 circular needles. At the beginning of each round, there is a very visible "seam" and I'm not sure how to get rid of it. It's too late to start over to tighten those stitches (hind sight is 20/20 and I'm past the point of no return). Is there a trick to fixing those holes or will I have to get really crafty with a yarn needle and hope the future owner of the blanket doesn't turn it over? :-)
It looks like it's loose stitches. I've counted and searched and haven't found any yarn overs or dropped stitches (well, I have, but I fixed those :-) ). Being new at this, those are the only two things I can think of that would cause this besides loose stitches. I hope you're right about it tightening up in the wash, but I'm using acrylic yarn, which (in my crochet experience) usually comes out the same way it goes in. There have been one or two crochet projects that I've hoped washing/drying would solve the problem, but that has only worked (for me) when I use the natural yarn.
