This is my third “slip stitch” related question in a week, here it goes…
For my garter stitch cardigan I’ve used an edge which involves slipping the first stitch purlwise (yarn in back) and knitting last stitch. Now, when done in a swatch, this “pattern” looks different depending on which edge you’re looking at. I’m not talking about WS or RS, I mean that if you have a swatch right face up to you, the left edge and right edge are very different. Have you noticed? This is an issue because when I fold over the cardigan’s Left Side and Right Side, so that the cardigan is closed and buttoned up, you clearly see that the two edges which meet in the middle don’t look the same.
Have I done something wrong or is this just the way it is? I’d like the cardigan to look symmetrical.
