I have a pattern for a jumper in 4ply on No.11(u.k.) needles...I want to make it in 8ply on No.8 (u.k.) needlesthe number of stitches per 10cm for both is the same...however the number of rows is different...would just kntting to measurement work???...or do I need to work out by fractions the ratio of 8ply to 4ply to get the correct sizing???
Most patterns row guage doesn't matter so much. Most patterns will say "...knit for 10 inches...." so in that case you'll be fine.
What are you making? can we see a link to the pattern or even just a pic of it?
many thanks...it's a sleeveless jumper(vest) knitted sideways..easypeezy if U follow the rules..i.e. correct yarn etc..wanted it in 8ply caus it's warmer...Guess there's only one way to find out...and if at the supermarket laughter errupts I'll know it's not quite right...lol lol lol
