Here's what the pattern says about the guage:
20 Stitches and 27 rows = 4 inches/10 cm
I made my swatch with the recommended needles (size 7), and it measures 3.5 inches across, which means I need to try size 8, right?
BUT, doesn't the guage they want translate to 5 stitches per inch? When I count stitches per inch, it's exactly 5. So which one do I pay attention to?
