Trouble along the edges

For the most part I’m doing my knitting rows ok but when I get to the edges the “slack” doesn’t pull through and I end up with a loop. How do I prevent this?

Loose edges are very common in the beginning. You can try holding your working yarn tight for the first few stitches and see if that helps. Another way to keep the edges neater is to slip the first stitch without doing anything to it and knitting the last stitch in every row.

I will give it a try, thanks!
