Loose edges

I’m a newbie knitter. I’m just practicing right now, and my edges are loose and uneven. Help! What am I doing wrong?

You’re probably not doing anything wrong. It takes time and practice to build even tension. Just keep going. Eventually you should see that they are getting better as your fingers and brain learn a new technique.

Hi. Learning to knit has it’s challenges, but they aren’t typically too hard to meet. You might try pulling the first stitch in each row a little tighter, that helps me.
