Have you had your gauge need to increase up 2 or more needles sizes from the pattern suggested needles.
I am working with Noro Lily Multiyarn, a DK wt I would guess. The pattern suggest a number 7 needle and asks for 19sts for 4"
I’m getting like 25 sts and it is not tight at all. I have tried both a pattern swatch and a stockinett swatch.
It looks as though I’m going to have to go up to size 9 needles. This pattern is a bit lacy and I’m worried their will be gapping holes and not lacy.
