I just learned continental knitting at this site, but I can’t seem to get the edges consistent in stockinette. In garter stitch, slipping the first stitch purlwise on each knit row gives the (same) nice edge but I can’t seem to make the transition to stockinette. I am slipping the first stitch (knitwise) on the knit row, which creates a nice edge, but slipping the first stitch (purlwise) on the purl row is ugly – large loops, about twice the size of the first stitch on the knit row! What am I missing?!
