I'm a self-taught knitter and have lots of hats and scarves to my bag of finished projects. I have even attempted and completed a cable sweater (8 years old and my favorite)! The only reason I decided on a cable sweater was because of the hem curl that I could never avoid with the very clean looking knit stitch. This time, I want to make a sweater that is plain, plain, plain!
I have started it, and I have knit 6 rows of ribbing. I thought I could avoid a curl by using a few rows of ribbing, but I can't seem to avoid it. Any suggestions? I want as little ribbing as possible for "cleaner" look, and I don't want the ribbing to end up pulling the hem or cuffs in. How do I achieve an even drape?
If it helps/matters, I am using:
size 10 (6mm) needles
Thanks in advance.
