a question about elongated stitch?
hello again, back with yet more questions this time it's about elongated stitch on a scarf...ok..on my last stitch on, first stitch off, the strand of yarn is longer than the others, everytime i'm not sure what i'm doing...i'm wrapping it around the needle 4 times each time...if anyone has any tips please help...i've restarted this thing like 12 times and am getting frustrated... so thank you all so much for all your help....thank you...

Nicole

Since the first/last stitch tends to be loose for you, maybe you could try wrapping 3x instead of 4? :thinking:

do you mean you are supposed to wrap the yarn so manytimes, or that you could to take up the slack?
if its something you are doing to take up the slack, its the tension (how tight you pull on the tail end of the yarn when you make a stitch), and I find it all evens out in the end, but it happened a lot to me at the beginning of my knitting

Some patterns say to slip the first OR last stitch on scarfs as part of the pattern to avoid this problem

hope this helps

On the elongated stitch cross over scarf on Knitty Gritty, the pattern has you knit the first stitch and wrap the rest of them. I did this some and didn't have a problem. Maybe that would help????? It's at http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_kni...520331,00.html
