I'm a beginner. Having made a few scarves lengthwise, I'm seeing a consistent problem. I'm binding off too tightly, and the scarves are ending up with a slight arc to them.
All the instructions I've seen say "bind off loosely". Can someone give me some practical advice on the best way to do this? Should my bind off stitches be twice as big as normal? Is there any secret to managing the tension in the two stitches before I cross one over and drop it off?
I'd love to know what specific tricks and techniques you use.
