i have found my yarn and swatched it, and figured out how many squares i need to knit (36 18"x16" squares) for my first blanket.
i would like for these squares to have nice crisp clean edges so that when i seam them all together they stand out as actual squares and not sort of lumpy almost squares. see, my cast-on usually is kind of lumpy looking and my bind off is ok, i think (i do the basic knit bind off) but if there is a better one for this type of edging i would love to know.
also, my row edges never really look clean either. i have heard that there is something you can do to make the sides of a piece look neater than if one is just knitting. does anyone know what im talking about?
thanks in advance for your help
