I’m trying to use up some older cotton yarn and make some dishrags. The pattern I want to follow uses a thicker cotton yarn (4) but I have (3) yarn slightly smaller. The pattern suggests a 2.5 needle. Do I want to go up a size taking into account the thinner yarn, or stay the same? thank you
For dishrags, any gauge would be fine - it really depends on the kind of fabric you’d like! If you like them a bit “looser”, use the larger needles, but you could go for another size needle and see how that feels.
