I need help! I am an ok knitter and can understand the basics of reading a pattern. I am just about to start a new project knitting a baby jumper (Hayfield 4402).
I have a problem understanding the tension. The pattern says "pattern panel 24sts measures 14cm (5.5in) on 6.5mm needles and 14 sts and 19 rows to 10cm (4in) over stocking stitch on 6.5mm needles or the size required to give correct tension"
So I don't understand! Is the tension square 24 sts or 14 sts??
Any help gratefully received!
