I am making a shawl which calls for a yarn not available to me the gauge is 29 stitches and 32 rows to 4 inches on 7 US needles prior to blocking yarn used is lace wgt cashmere.
I am using Paton Lace yarn gauge is 26 stitches and 32 rows to 4 inches on 4 US needles.
My question if I use 3 or 4 US needles will the finished shawl not be as Lacey as the pattern? Or am I better to go with the larger needles called for in the pattern where my gauge is 6 rows to the inch and 5 stitches to the inch prior to blocking
Thank you for any help
