Help needed

What can I do to prevent a stretched looking stitch between the last peg and the first one? After I have finished my hat, there is a definite row that looks like it has longer stitches and it leaves a bigger space between rows. Does anyone know what I am talking about? It is hard to explain unless you can see it.

to avoid this problem just e wrap or knit all but the last peg in the round. With each round your skipped peg will be the peg next to the last one skipped.

Stretched Looking Stitch

I know what you are talking about. The cause is when you push down all the loops to the bottom and begin to wrap the new loops at the top of the pegs. To get to the first wrap the yarn must go diagonal from the bottom of the last peg to top of the first peg and this makes it longer than all the rest. All the rest of the wraps go straight across and will thus be shorter than the first. To correct this, when you push down the wraps to the bottom, leave the last two pegs at the top, so when you begin the new round of wraps, the first wrap will go straight accross like all the rest. Push down those two wraps at the end of the round when you get to them.

I understand what you're saying. You can try to tighten those strings so they won't come out so loose. I believe that's how you do it.
