I did a baby blanket in the bamboo stitch. Looks good but it is slanted. Any suggestions to keep it square? Also as a novice knitter any suggestions on how to make the edges look the same? I tried slipping the first stitch. The also curl under. Would a garter stitch border help?
Welcome to KH!
What pattern are you using? The way some yarns are spun can have an effect on the way the stitch slants and may also cause the pattern to be skewed I think.
Most bind offs and cast on stitches don’t match exactly. I think the only way to make them match up perfectly is to cast on provisionally and knit half, then knit the other half from the the cast on edge and bind off. That doesn’t work with all patterns though.
