Why does the edges on my knitting pucker?

Hi Everyone,

my name is Amy, I am new to the site and I just have to say I love it. It has really helped me understand knitting alot better and opened up so many more possibilities. I am a beginner but I am very excited. The only problem that I am having is that the edges on my knitting keep curling inward, What am I doing wrong. I am just doing a basic stockinette stitch right now and I am pretty sure my tension is not too tight. Any suggestions?


see sticky here for FAQ.

At the top of the page is a sticky post with lots of help.

Stockinette ALWAYS curls, it’s the nature of the beast so you are doing nothing wrong. :wink: Read the help at that post and if you have more questions just ask away.
