I am trying to substitute one yarn for another and am trying to compare gauges. For instance, the pattern for this one yarn (discontinued and European) says:
4x4" = 14 sts and 20 rows using size 11 needles.
This is the yarn I want to substitute:
4x4" = 20 sts and 26 rows using size 7 needles.
How do I compare these 2 using such different size needles? Is it simple algebra?
