Here’s the pattern:
1 skein wool ease thick & quick (Lion Brand)
US 15 needles
CO 15 sts.
Row 1: *K3, sl 1; repeat from *, end k3.
Row 2: K1, *sl 1, k3; repeat from *, end sl, k1.
I want to convert this to using size 11 US needles cause the yarn I have is less thick than the above. BUT when I try to CO a derivitive of 5’s, it doesn’t come out the way it should. How many should I CO to make this work?
