I am a brand new knitter.So new that I purchased all my knitting tools only this morning. :cheering:
I’ve got a pattern for a Boy’s V-neck vest which calls for a 10 1/2 size circular needle and worsted weight yarn.When I tried to swatch,I find the stitches too big and loose.Also,the pattern does not mention the length of the cable for the needle.My boy is a size 6 with chest 26 inches.So I presume I need a circular needle with a total length of 24 inches.Is that right?
The label on the yarn says US 8 needle to be used.Will I get better stitches with that needle size. this is the pattern
