Hi everyone! I’m new here and new to knitting as well. I’ve made one sweater so far (wrong size lol oops) so I’m about to make a bigger one. It calls for 16st 32rows/4 inches. I haven’t completed the swatch yet but I can’t even get the 16 stitches to make 4 inches! I’m using a different yarn this time, first time I used a worsted weight cotton, now i’m using wool. The pattern calls for size 8 needles and I’m already on size 10 and 1/2, is this normal, or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for your help!
