Uneven knitting tension


I have recently learned to knit and I have tension problems with ribbing. As you can see in the image, the v in the image is a lot looser than the normal knit stitches. How do I make the tension the same on both parts or is that just how it ends up. :brown_heart:

Switching between knit and purl can make knit stitches bigger. Practice will neaten your ribbing. :blush: You could also try purling continental style. There are lots of good YouTube videos on continental knitting.

Try switching to a smaller needle size when you get to the ribbed part!

I had that same problem and switching to smaller needles helped! I usually go down two sizes for ribbing.
