Hi, I just started making scarves with the knifty knitters this week and I LOVE it. I never seen myself knitting anything ever! But I love scarves and I seen this as and easy and fun way to make scarves, and I am even making them for my nieces and nephews for christmas gifts :)

My problem is that my cast on looks waaaay different than the cast off, It looks really loopy and loose on the cast on end. I seen in a loom book somewhere how to fix this but cannot find any videos or instructions anywhere on the net how to fix this, Can someone please help or direct me to where I can find instructions???? Thanks sooooo much in advance, I am attaching a photo of my first practice scarf to show what I mean

Welcome to our addicting world!!... you are going to love love it.

I learned a way to make both ends look the same... I was so excited when I did.

when you cast off... take all the loops from one side and loop over the other side...then lift the bottom loop over the top loop over the peg..then start at oppsite end of your ending string..and use a crotch hook to pull the ends through to the top... makes a beautiful edge....

on the other end start at the opposite side from where you long string is... there will be loose loops one on the let and then the right and so on... take the end loop on your crochet hook then go to the other side and pull that one through...crocheting that end...this way both the ends will look just alike!!... I was beyond excited when I learned this trick!!
hugs

Thanks Jeannie, that makes sooo much sense now, since that is basically how I tied off the end ;) Not sure why I didn't think of that! Really wish I wouldn't have tied off that long string now, lol Thanks much BigGrin Jayni

I've also added dangling yarn fringe to the ends to give them an even look ... or gathered the ends and added a long Tassel type piece ... it's a cute way to add some decoration to the ends and make them look identical at the same time!
