Binding off-not pleased-need tips
When I bind off, the stitches themselves look quite nice, but my bound off edge tugs in at the corners, causing my final row to be narrower than the others. I'm not sure I'm explaining that well. :thinking:

If anyone knows what I mean, do you have suggestions for this "hopefully soon to be known as a knitter"?

I think when you pass the sts over, they may make the knitting tighter....maybe try knitting at a looser tension in the last row?

Do you mean the last row before the bind-off row?

No, I would say knit looser IN the bind off row. Let me know how it turns out!
