The pattern I am working on is calling for 16 sts equal 4 inches, so basically 4 sts per inch. I knit my gauge and I’m getting 5 inches per stitch. I’m using size 9 US needles and really yummy Merino yarn.
As a rule of thumb if you need your gauge smaller then you would go up a needle size. However, I really want to get started :teehee: and my knitting store is closed until Tuesday. :grrr:
Can I knit the pattern in one size larger? Would that work, because it would be a little smaller?
Or should I just wait until I can get the larger needles. Knitting is so addictive!
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
