<<<<<<if only that didn’t mean MATH! :roflhard: I’m using different yarn, but I don’t think I can just cast on and get it to work. I’m thinking of making the larger size. The link is cool for crochet, but I don’t know how to crochet! Was I missing something? Is there something on the site for changing your pattern for knitting?<<<<<
Stitch swatch is just a stitch swatch. No matter whether you knit it or crochet. You don’t need to change your pattern for knitting. A simple logic to calculate gauge will still be the same. Just follow the link I gave above and you will be fine.
You do can use any yarn, cast on and get it to work. Any size you want. Be a little brave and try. Can you imagine that you won’t have to look for some one’s description any more?
All descriptions which you find for your projects are done exactly the same way : stitch swatch (a small headache for those whose swatch came out different ;))----calculations for your size----- done.
There is no any other way to calculate proper size to knit or crochet garment. Stitch swatch is the only one. A little more brevity!!!
Let me know if you have some troubles with calculations.
