I knitted up a gauge using bulky wool.
Size 6-7 5st=1"
Size 8 4st=1"
I am making longies [or pants like these] and this is my first time using bulky. I usually use 6’s for the waist [2x2 rib] and then go to 8’s for the rest.
[B] My question: when I use the 6’s should I CO for 5 st per inch and then decrease when I switch to the 8’s?[/B]
Example: 165=80+3 so I would do 83 st’s for the rib and then decrease to 67 st [164=64+3=67] for the body?
