  1. Any tips on tightening the one last knit stitch after the tuck stitch at the end of the row? I am ending up with a very uneven “bumpy” panel at the end of knit tuck rows because the last knit loop becomes very loose before i knit into it. Any suggestions? Or should I not worry about it ?

  2. I am looking for directions to do a tuck stitch purlwise, but haven’t found them anywhere. Can you help??

  3. I’ve been working on creating a pattern for a scarf that a big retailer created! The scarf requires this technique however instead of knitting into the stitch you purl into it! I haven’t been able to find the abbreviation for a tuck stitch done purl wise? Is there one?
