    Why does my rib stitch scrunch up?

    Hi, I'm in the process of making some scarves and want to do some with ribbing. The problem is that it scruches all up and you can only see the ribs with the stockinette stitch. Does anyone know why this is happening? I know by "nature" stockinette curls but I'm not sure if it's me, the needles or what.

    i've found that this is pretty much the nature of the stitch in far too many cases unless you block it.... a lot. even then, it tends to scrunch up again. if you want a more flat rib, the "mistake rib" stitch makes a nice scarf and it lays nicely. odd rows, it's knit 3, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 3 yadda yadda. even rows, purl 3, knit 3. i've had some nice results with it.

    that's just what ribbing looks like. even if you do a knit 3, purl 3, it will still bunch up. that's why ribbing is so stretchy and holds your socks up. if you want a flatter effect that won't roll, try seed stitch or another stitch.
