I want to knit a shawl called “January Morning Shawl” from a book called “Knit Shawls & Wraps in 1 Week”. It’s started in a corner with all the increases along one side with a cable going up that side. Normally I don’t look at the gauge for Shawls because I figure I’ll just knit until it’s big enough. This gauge caught my eye.
Gauge: 13 st and 29 rows for 4" in garter stitch, blocked
This is using size 8 needles with aran weight yarn.
Wouldn’t 13 sts over 4" be about 3 sts per inch??? I thought Aran weight is a #4 icon weight. What am I missing??
Thanks so much for helping me keep my sanity!!!
