I am a newbie knitter, and I’m progressing fast but I still have some doubts and I do not knit on expensive yarn just yet… but I found a girl who was destashing and I bought some Bluemerino extra fine. It is for US size 6 needles. My pattern calls for size 4.
I tried to change needles to get the gauge but now I’m down to size 3 and the gauge is still off. I imagine this means that the yarn that I have is not to be used with the pattern I’m attempting?
I guess my real (and probably silly question) is not every yarn can be adapted to any needles?
Sorry but I’m still trying to get the grasp on how to get the gauge right. Thanks!
