I have the problem that my knitting sts tend to have a different width:height ratio than is normal. For most knitting, this isn't a problem, but I've had problem with knitting color work from a pattern: The images always look a little squatty.
My knitting sts tend to have a ratio of 7:9, rather than 5:7.
Since the height of sts is largely determined by the diameter of the needle, will loosening my knitting help?
Any advice would help. I really want to do some fair-isle, but I don't want it to come out looking short and fat.
