I've been knitting a jumper in the round up to the armholes and have just divided.  I'm using a pure cotton and now that I'm knitting back and forth there is a big difference between circular and flat.  My purl rows seem to be way looser, it's all hideously uneven and I'm not sure if it will block out evenly.  Short of alternating needles every row what can be done?

Um, if you have interchanable circ. needles, you could screw on two different sizes, and then you wouldn't actually be forced to remember to change them.

You could put the stitches on scrap yarn and do a "test block" to see if it'll block out.  (Spritz the thing and get it damp, then pin it out to size/shape.)

Sorry I'm not of more help  Sad

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

Blocking and/or washing will even them out. I think it's the nature of cotton yarn.
