You probably used the backward loop cast on which causes loops and spaces if used for more than a few sts. Try another cast on, knitted, cable or long tail.

I agree with Sue. Use the knitted cast on. You'll never have this problem again!!!

I had tried diffrent cast ons with no change it turned out I was casting on loose so my next stitch would be easier but the first round of stitching I was pulling tight way tight so the gap continued to grow. Live and learn thanks for the advice though.
