This has been bothering me for awhile...
I can pick up a ball of yarn, and 99% of the time, with the suggested needles, my stitch gauge is perfect. However, my row gauge is virtually never right. I always have less rows.
Right now, I've started a sweater. The gauge is 20 stitches and 32 rows is the 4x4 inch square. Mine is 20 stitches and 26 rows is a 4x4 inch square.
I know that since I know the measurements to the bind off for the armholes, that I will just go by that, and would end up knitting less rows than I would if my row gauge were what the pattern calls for, but can someone explain to me what it is about my knitting that my stitch gauge would be perfect by my rows are never right? And is there something I can do differently so that my rows would also be right? I'm feeling 'deficient'....:tap:
