Hello. I am attempting to undertake the Quidditch sweater from the book Charmed Knits. I have a problem with my gauge.
It tells me 24 stitches and 30 rows = 4 in. I have to swatch in double rib with #7 needles, measuring with rib slightly stretched. With this, should I be getting 6 stitches to an inch or am I wrong? The pattern calls for Plymouth Encore, and thats what I am using.
I keep getting 5.5 on my stitches, using both 7 and 6 needles. Is there something I am doing wrong?
Gauge can be frustrating to a newbie. Especially the words “slightly stretched.” Thanks for all your help
