I want to knit this tank from Berroco.
I have yarns from Laines du Nord, Soleil and the ticket says
use 5 or 6 mm needles.
Instruction says needle size 8 (5mm).
The gauge should be 11 sts= 2 inches,
and 8 rows = 1 inch in ST. st.
Well, I tried several times changing also needle sizes
but I can obtain just 10 sts= 2 inches and
7 rows = 1 inch with 4,5mm needles.
I tried 4mm needles, too, but since I’m new to
knitting, it became really tight and ugly. :verysad:
Stitches seems too crowded for the summer tank, too.
What should I do??
