so I am a little confused: when a pattern says knit until something is so long, and then shows the sketch of dimensions, both of these are post-swatching right?
so when you are actually knitting the thing, it isn’t even supposed to match either, really?
and when books mention people getting 22 stitches in an inch back in the day, what yarn were THEY using??? they say it was very warm and all that too.
I can’t even get 32 stitches into 4 inches on size 0 needles with dk yarn!
am I just knitting much much looser than everyone else on the planet?
how do you learn to knit tighter? could you learn that in a class?
