How do you prevent the sides from being loose

I have a problem when I get to the end/beginning of a new row of the side being real loose. It doesn’t show when I get started on the next row, but I don’t know how to get it not to do that. Is this normal?

Thnx :happydance:

very normal. it is different than all your other stitches because it doesn’t have another stitch next to it to help snug it up. i always just kind of give it a gentle tug down to snug it up a bit and usually, as you have found, starting the next row takes care of it. I think a lot of people slip the first stitch of each round too, and that seems to help.

:cheering: Thank you so much. I was worried I was doing something wrong. :hug:
