Purl stitches too loose
Hey All,

I am getting pretty good now with a lot of the basic stitches. Thanks to all of the help this forum has given me.

However, I am doing a cabled neck warmer and knitting in the round. All of my knit stitches look great, but when I get to the purl stitches, they are coming out rather loose and the knit stitch before that is very loose as well.

I have tried to make the purl stitch tighter than the others, but to know avail.

The pattern is *k8, p2* repeat. I am using US 11 needles and bulky yarn.

I seems that if I am using smaller needles and finer yarn the purl stitches come out fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
