I’m swatching for my first baby sweater (baby is due 7wks from today so I had better get going!).
I’m using berroco touche yarn which says 20sts and 30 rows = 4in on US 8’s.
My gauge is supposed to be 22sts and 30 rows= 4in.
My first swatch I used size 5’s and got 20st = 4in and 30 rows = 5 in.
then I tried size 4’s and got 21st = 4in and 30 rows - 4.5 in.
the length doesn’t bother me, should I try 3’s? if I go to a larger size like a 6 or 7 will it be way off since I’m already getting something close?
Thanks - this gauge stuff makes my head hurt!
