Hi there. My first ever project, started two days ago, was supposed to be a scarf but because I noticed a funny shape I bound (binded?) off early just to get a look at it. Sure enough, instead of a square I had a sort of trapezoid. The bind off row was straight(ish) but the sides went sharply inward on the way down so that the bottom row is much smaller that the top.
I used a "Chunky Alpaca" yarn, did a garter stitch, used 10 1/2 needles, and no pattern. I assumed I would get a square or at least a rectangle! Is it that I didn't slip off the first stitch of each row but knitted it instead?
Please help me get from this :doh: to this :XX: !!!
