Uneven rib

See help request posted on knittersreview Forum here

Here are the pictures of my ribbing (this is a three by three rib)

Front of work (notice that the last knit stitch - or the knit stitch on the left of each column is stretched out)

Back (notice that the first purl - or stitch in the right column looking like a knit here is stretched out even worse)

I see what you mean, twisting could help, lot of knitters twist the first and last knit of a rib to tighten it up, it is a crisp look.
Sarakates blog entry is really informative,
and a few washes, it'll even out, and for now non knitters, beginner knitters, wont even notice and experienced ones will be to polite to point it out

Hi Emily,

This ribbing problem totally happens to me! I didn't have the issue when I first started knitting, but now, 4 years later, here I am, and I can't even make a simple ribbing pattern look right. Did you ever figure out what was going wrong and how to fix it? I know that some people recommend the combination knitting method, but I'd rather avoid having to mount some of my stitches differently than all the rest.

I hope you found a solution that works for you.

Thanks a bunch,
