starting out
Hello:

I am just learning, and casting on with long tail, it seems like when i go and release and pull it tight, it is not coming out like it should, i am following the video that you have but still not getting the last part and i know i asked this, but should i try doing it with a bigger needle? i had gotten a dark blue yarn and yes it is harder to see on the size 8 needle maybe because the needle is blue as well, i know that sounds crazy.

give me a dog to groom to problem! i really would like to learn how to knitt

You can also do Tubular Stockinette Stitch: #K1, SL1P wyif, rep from # across, for each row, and it will not curl, and also make it double thick. The only downside is you have to caston twice as much, as it gathers. To bind off, use One-over-Two bind-off.

I hope I am not jumping in here at the wrong time, read 4-5 pages then skipped to the last as I need curling help also! I am knitting a scarf with size 8 needles, Vanna glamour yarn and have about 30 rows which has taken me quite a while ! Its knit one row and purl the next etc, (dont know if that is stockinette stitch or what you call it, I simply call it, at this point in my knitting career, knit one row, purl the next) and its curling on the bottom and the sides. This scarf takes 6 skeins of yarn and so will be kinda pricey so I want it nice. On every 10 set of rows, you do yarn overs and k2tg to make a little pattern, should I start over and just knit every row? I dont enjoy purling so if you experienced knitters out there told me it would work, I would be too tickled! Thanks, and once again, new here and hope I didnt type anything wrong, say anything wrong, or speak when it wasnt my turn!

Yes, that is called stockinette. Stockinette without borders always curls. It's just the nature of the beast. You'll need a pretty wide border to help counteract that. You can pick up stitches along the edge when you're done or knit borders as you go. Blocking won't help too much since its acrylic.

Scarf help
I am knitting a scarf in stockinette stitch. I am almost done with it now, and because its in stockinette the edges are curling. I was told that I could use a crochet hook and crochet a row onto the edges, or pick up stitches on a smaller gauge knitting hook and knit a few rows, and this should make it flat. Is this true? If so, any advice or suggestions is appreciated!

Hi, yes that can help, though it may not get rid of the curling completely along with some type of blocking.

I don't know if this was mentioned before on this thread, but Techknitter has a nifty way to turn a stockinette scarf into a ribbed one to keep it from curling after it's knit. Or if you read the link to the previous post in this series, you can just do a drop st and keep it in. She says it doesn't seem to be necessary to have a 50/50 split between knit and purl stitches.

border for my stockinette??
how do you border your stockinette? Is it done while knitting the main project or is it added on later somehow?

Somebody before reccomended seed or garter stitch, which I understand but at what point do you do one of those?

many thanks!
emily
