Tension is so important, but have you ever wondered what to do if your knit and purl rows are coming out at different tensions? Well, you could knit with a pair of different sized needles – one 4mm and one 4.5mm, for example, or you could take a leaf out of the book of innovative blogger Sarah, from Bella Knitting and teach yourself to knit backwards.
If you don't like turning your work at the end of every row when knitting narrow pieces of stocking stitch – for example, entrelac – then this is a great technique to learn, although it does take a bit of puzzling out.
