  • Count the loops, make sure you are doing the same amount for each line. Now for the hard part, make sure each loop is the same tightness. The more even you can do each of these the better the edges will look. Good luck!

  • Yep - I agree with Mrs.Coop - count your stiches and keep the same tension on the yarn for all of the stiches. Plus, make sure that you are placing the new stitch in the same place in the previous row - either in the front loop, the back loop, or through both. All three produce interesting patterns in your work, but you can get uneven rows if you are not consistent with stitch placement.
