I just bought a new skein of baby yarn to start a simple roll-edge hat for our soon-to-be born daughter. I was being a good boy and knitting a gauge swatch in stockinette. I noticed that my RS rows seemed almost ribbed...
I have only done garter stitch for projects - is there a natural tendency to purl tight or loose as a beginner? I'm a "thrower" and find purling a bit awkward - any thoughts?
