" Just The Way I Have worked this Problem out "
2 of Several different ways.

Try to pull the yarn all the way along the chain row.
You will have to hand twist and pull at each stitch to make it tighter.
THEN , I cut the extra yarn and make a knot.

Or > work your sc edge into the chain and 1st row.

I don't know if these will work for you , but these are a few ways I have used with a row too loose.

ESPECISSALY > Knitting !!
