I found today that if I knit by bringing the yarn from back of the needle to the front it wasn't as loose as if I did it the other way around which is my usual way of knitting. I hope that makes sense.

I'm knitting a bi-color scarf, and I'm using cotton and acrylic. Will blocking work? I'm doing a border, but it still curls!

Sugarfunpouch I answered in your other post.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I tried reading this but it is a lot of pages. One of my advanced knitting friends may have found a way to help with this that I haven't seen posted on here, or if it is, I overlooked it.

She borders all stockinette patterns with 5 sts of K on both ends and 2 rows of K top and bottom. She starts after CO with 2 row k before she starts her pattern, and ends with 2 rows K.

This may affect some patterns, and she is an advanced knitter so I know she does some adjusting on some patterns a little to keep sizes and guages correct, but if it ends the curling as I have seen it end it on her projects it seems it would be worth the little extra time to adapt.

Row 7: K5, K across, K last 5
Row 8: K5, P across, K last 5

Is that correct? Just not feeling froggy today.

thanks in advance!!!!!

I'm not a complete newbie but I've managed to avoid st st in nearly all of my projects. If the pattern says to work 3 rows in st st does that mean purl, knit, purl or (purl, knit), (purl, knit), (purl, knit)? Is "one row" of st st purl the whole row and then knit the whole row?

One row is one row across. 3 rows of stockinette would be knit a row, purl a row, knit a row or purl a row, knit a row, purl a row, depending on where you need to start.
