I am a relatively new knitter working on baby pants that uses worsted weight yarn (I have previously only done blankets and scarves).
The gauge is 20sts and 26rows = 4" in stockinette stitch with a #6 needle.
I tried this, and my 20sts measured about 5.5". I went all the way down to a #3 needle and I am still getting 4.75" for 20 sts! Using a #2 needle just seemed too small for a worsted weight yarn.
Am I doing something wrong? Why can’t I get 20sts to equal 4"??
