Hello, new to the group, but wanted to pose this question…
I’m working a basic stockinette guage swatch (yes! I do them!) and my stitches look a bit odd. I’m right handed using the English method and the left side of my stitch is straight up and down while the right side is giving me the expected ‘heart-shaped’ stitch. I’ve tried to vary the needle size from 6 to 8 (6 was recommended), but with the same essential result.
Is my tenstion too tight? Is it just the type of yarn I’m using (Lion Brand Micro-Spun (100% acrylic microfibre?) Is it the needles - Brittany Birch?
I tried to take a photo of my result, but it’s black yarn and the detail won’t show up no matter how much I change the lighting.
Just wondering if anyone else has had a simimlar experience and I should just chill or change something.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
