I’m working on my first 2-color Norwegian hat. Gauge is 6 st/in, which I got on the band with #4 addi circulars. 20 rows into the colorwork my gauge is now 7 st/in, which makes the hat way too small.
I’m knitting with both hands, one color English, one color continental. It’s dk yarn, Cascade 220. It’s not sliding on the Addi’s like other yarns have, so that should have been my first clue. Usually my knitting is middle of the road… not too tight, not too loose. But this 2-color business has thrown me for a loop.
I ripped out my colorwork back to the band. Should I just increase 1 needle size? Or two? Is that normal? Or is there something I can look for, or consciously do/not do when knitting with 2-colors?
