I was wondering if anyone knows why this is--if it's me (most likely) or an issue with the garter stitch itself that I don't know about. I don't have such tension problems on other types of stitches.
Generally, I don't even like the look of garter stitch, but I am trying out a log cabin square for my sampler blanket and it uses all garter stitch. My horrible-looking, uneven stitching is ruining it. I will finish it, but may not even use the square in the end. :rollseyes:
I hope that some light blocking and shaping after it's finished will help it. I am using a 50/50 wool/acrylic blend for this square and don't know how much blocking will help.
