Needle size

Hi evereyone…I was wondering if a scarf pattern calls for a size 11 needle and I have 10 or 13, would it be OK to use the size 13? Thanks

Since it’s a scarf and the size is not critical, you can use either of your needles. On the 10 it will be smaller, and on the 13 it will be larger. If it’s a plain scarf you can just decrease the number of stitches you cast on. If it’s a pattern that can’t be easily changed–decide what you’d rather have–bigger or smaller.

thanks, i didn’t think it would matter. This is my first project since last winter. I’m surprised i still know how to knit. I’m so excited to get back into it. I guess im one of those knitter’s that just knit’s in the winter.
