I am new to knitting and have just started working on a scarf. Here’s where I am stuck.
The scarf pattern I found has a gauge of 3 sts=1" in pattern stitch and wants me to use a US size 11 needle. The yarn I have and want to use has a gauge of 20 sts=4" in pattern stitch and wants me to use a US size 7 needle. If I use the yarn i have and a US size 7 needle how will this affect my design? Should I try using the yarn I have with a bigger size needle? What will that do?
I will really appreciate any advice.
