Gauge Problems

I’ve started to knit continental at least part of the time and have discovered that I am a much different knitter that way. When I knit English I am usually about a needle size bigger than what the yarn package says. I just stated an afghan square which is supposed to be 12 and one half inches and after about 4 inches worth of knitting it measures 15 inches across. I’m using number 7 needle and I know I’ll go down at least one size but I’m thinking maybe two. Advice?

Hey Jeremy!

That seems like an awful lot–I’d go down two sizes to start with, as well.

Thanks Ingrid. :smiley:
