I have been trying to teach myself to knit for 1 week now. I have the knit and purl stitch down pretty well ~ just slow :thinking: . I am attempting my first project ever a simple scarf. Knit one row, purl the next row. I read that in order to keep a nice edge it is a good idea to knit every first and last stitch (regardless if it is a purl row). So i have been doing that and I notice that some of my edges look like the stitches are knots!
I don't know what i am doing wrong, maybe I am twisting that first knit stitch when i switch it to purl. Maybe I should just do the first stitch the same as what I am knitting or purling for the rest of the row. Any suggestions? The rest of my stitches look okay though, it's just that first stitch when starting a purl row.
