Hi there. Firstly thank you to all those who helped me finish my first knitting project your help was invaluable!
Now that I have finished I need some help with correcting my tension for my next project.
My last project a baby jersey ended up being too small. partly due to tension and partly because it took me so long!
My pattern suggested that 22 stitches per 10cm on this I was almost there mine ended up being 23 however the row tension was way out. It was supposed to be 30 rows per 10cm mine was more like 33.
My knitting definitely got a little looser as I went on.
Could you please advise the best way to correct this? Should I try knitting looser still or should I change my needle size?
If changing needle size how much bigger would you recommend? I was using 4mm (US size 6) Needles would you go up to a 5mm ( US size 8) or use a 4.5mm ( US size
Thank you in advance!
