I’m trying to get my gauge right for my first sweater. In doing the swatch, I find that with the recommended needle size I get the correct width but the swatch is too long:
Bulky yarn, size 13 needles, the pattern states that it should be 4 inches at 12 stitches and 18 rows in stockinette. I get 5.5 inches at 18 rows
When I try size 11 needles, the swatch is too narrow (3.5 inches), but it does end up the correct length.
What to do? Thanks for your help!
