Should I slip the first stitch in knitting?
First and foremost, unless the instructions indicate otherwise, slipping stitches is always done purlwise. The only way to keep the correct “leg” facing forward in your knitting is to slip the stitch as if to purl, and it doesn’t matter if you are on the right side or the wrong side of your work.
Why are the edges of my knitting loose?
If you’re getting a column of loose stitches along the edge of your knitting, it’s probably a sign that the tension is uneven between your end stitches and the center ones. When you’re knitting the edge stitches, tug the working yarn a little tighter than you normally would to help keep the stitch a little smaller.
What knitted items sell best?
Hands down, beanies are my number one best selling item, both online and at craft shows. This is the Basic Beanie pattern, which is super simple and sized for the whole family (newborns through adults)!
Why is knitting so hard?
This kind of complex coordination requires practice. It will also require a lot of practice to knit stitches evenly across the whole work. I always say it should look handcrafted, not self-made. But as long as you can’t hold an even tension on your yarn across thousands of stitches, that’s hard to achieve.
What should my first knitting project be?

What does slip 1 Purlwise mean in knitting?
To slip a stitch purlwise, you insert your needle into the next stitch as if to purl, and just slide it from your left needle to your right needle. On the one that’s been slipped purlwise, the right-hand leg of the stitch is in the front of the needle and the left-hand leg is in the back.
Do you slip first and last stitch?
On the purl side, or wrong side, follow the same steps: slip the first stitch without knitting or purling, purl the rest of the stitches except for the last one, knit the last stitch.
