    Having a problem with puckering at the bottom of the cloth?

    Easy Fix:

    Your first Row 2 knit the following–

    K 1, *K 5, KW2(Knit one stitch wrapping the yarn around the needle twice), repeat from * to last st, K 1

    Your first Row 3 knit the following–

    K 1, *sl 1,K 5, repeat from * to last st, K 1 (dropping all extra stitches from the KW2 when slipping stitches in this row)
