So, I’m a newbie, trying to knit a simple corner to corner garter stitch with YOs baby blanket. The pattern calls for sport or worsted yarn, with different gauge for each. My issue is knitting up the swatch. I realized I purchased a dk weight yarn (not listed on the label :rollseyes: ) but I really do love this yarn (Cashsoft 4ply) and want to use it.
sport weight 22 sts = 4" on #4 in garter
worsted 20 sts = 4" on #7 in garter
Finished measurement is 30" square. So my question is what is my gauge or does it matter if my finished blanket is 30"? I’ve knit on #4 and #6 with my swatches and get almost the same gauge. Is is quite possible I am measuring my swatches incorrectly? Doh! I am so confused trying to figure this out!!
