Left side V columns right before purl stiches look awful!
Hello everyone,

This is my first post in any online forum ever, so if I do something wrong please forgive me.

I would like to know if any of you know why the left side of my V columns before purl stiches look this way? I am attaching a picture for you to understand what I am talking about. What am I doing wrong?

Welcome!

Many people have a bit of a problem when they switch from one stitch to another. The only thing I can suggest is to pay attention when you make the next stitch to make sure it's nice and tight and that your needles are close together.

This is the best way to make ribbing! I recently showed my new knitting group how to do this and I'm excited to see the finished result. I showed them my ribbing made this way and that convinced a couple to give it a shot.
