Last st loose?

Hi. Very new knitter - as in a week old. I’ve noticed that the last st on my row (closest to needle point) is very loose each time. Why is this happening, and how can I fix it?


Welcome to Knitting Help!

You can try pulling tighter, but really just keep knitting. The loose stitch seems to tighten up on it’s own, plus your tension will get better with practice. :thumbsup:

It’s normal. One thing that helps me is on the first stitch of a row, knit or purl it, then pull the yarn gently to take up some slack from the last st in the previous row, and then knit the next couple sts tighter.
