So I'm knitting my first scarf and I thought it was coming out good but the edges seem a little off. They're not as refined as the rest of the scarf. I wish my digi cam were working I'd take a pic. Is there anything I can do to the scarf after I finish to fix the edges? I mean, I can leave it like that for an effect but I'd rather have it looking neat for my first major project. I'm using 2 colors (light blue then royal blue etc, so maybe that's why the edges don't look as refined) Any advice ladies? Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

LOL Now I'm confused aww I thought I was doing that already <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I'm a little discouraged but I'll finish this project and be more aware of my edges for the next.<br><br>
OK Edit:<br>
Now I get what you mean. Thank You. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I'm 1/3 done but I'll just keep on going. I was under the impression that if I did it that way it would add a new cast. The edges are looking good now. Thanks again

yep, you could! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Do a pretty shell along the edge.

Well I got fed up with the beginning of the scarf not looking as neat and I started all over. Now I know what I did wrong. Well, it's a learning process. Thanks for the help guys! Happy knitting!
