Easy Fix for Rowing Out

Easy Fix for Rowing Out

If you notice that every other row of your project is longer than its neighbours, that means your knits and purls have different tension.

It is a common issue called “rowing out”. It affects many stitch patterns, but is most visible on a fabric made in stockinette stitch.

There are a number of ways to fix rowing out – from using mismatched needles to changing to a different knitting style. Let’s talk about the easiest of those ways – the one that does not require any additional tools or any major effort on your part.

This method is a huge help when we want to eliminate rowing out in projects worked in stockinette stitch and in stitch patterns based on stockinette, like lace and basic cables.


The full step-by-step photo tutorial about this method, is a part of the Knitting Collection #7. Once you order your copy of this collection, you will instantly receive a “big PDF” (282 pages!) with this and 37 other tutorials included in the collection.

You will also receive three e-books and one knitting pattern as a special bonus, so go ahead and get it all right now before you forget 😊
