Elongated Stitch Scarf Help!
I'm new to knitting [this site has been a god send! ] and just finished a monster garter stitch scarf and thought I'd try the elongated stich scarf for my next project. I'm having a bit of trouble with the elongated stitch row though, the last stitch always ends up noticibly longer than the others and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong . Does anyone have any suggestions?

It's been awhile since I've done that, but from what I remember just keep going for a bit. After you've gone past the drop stitch row for several rows you can give it a tug and wiggle and it usually seems to even out pretty well.
