Tip: Tension to tight?

A simple solution

Tension has been a hot topic on the boards lately, so I thought I’d share a tip I found. If you find that your chains and slip stitches always seem to be too tight and your projects end up lopsided, try using a hook one size larger than the pattern calls for when you work just those stitches. Switch back to the smaller hook when you start working into your chain and you should be just about right!

And always remember: check your gauge!
