I’m in the middle of making a scarf for my sister. I decided to go with a simple basketweave pattern, but I have a question: I’ve noticed that when I make the change from knitted to purled stitches, the first purl stitch looks really wide due to moving the working yarn from the back to the front of the piece. I’ve tried snugging the purl stich more closely to the needle, but it doesn’t help.
I really like this pattern so I know I’ll be using it for other things. Any suggestions on how to get that first purl stitch to look more uniform? It’s one of those things that my sister will never notice, but I know it’s there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
