I have been knitting dog sweaters with 100% acrylic yarn. I am now going to make one with wool ease yarn and wanted to check my gauge. When I knit 17 st 20 rows equals 4 inch on #7 circular needles. When I do this with the wool ease I only get about 3 inches, so I went up to #8 needles but still only get about 3 1/2 inches. Do I try to use #9’s? I don’t have them so will need to buy them.
Thanks for any help
