Gauge is really a headache thingy and I am trying be patient to make it right this time.
18 sts and 26 rnds = 4” /10 cm in Stockinette stitch on larger needles.
US 7 (4.5 mm) 24” (60cm) or 32” (80cm)
circular needles and double pointed needles, US 5
(3.75 mm) 24” (60cm) or 32” (80cm) circular needles
and double pointed needles; or size needed to obtain gauge
The result I get by using US7 is 5 sts per inch
Then I up my needle to US8, and I am still getting 5 sts per inch.
What did I do wrong?
