I’m about to shove a knitting needle through my ear. This seems like a ridiculously basic quandary, but it’s making me insane. Whenever I try to slip the first stitch at the beginning of a row, it somehow adds a stitch to the sum, resulting in a freakish v-shaped scarf.
If the recipient were a triangle, this might be okay, but it’s for my mom. If anything she’s kind of pear shaped.
I’m sure there’s an embarrassingly simple solution. I’m just too dense to figure it out alone. Anyone able to let me in on the secret?
Thanks so much!
