I’m new to knitting and recently made a stocking for my great niece.
I thought I had done a good job until I was finished. The stocking is bigger than I believe that it’s suppose to be. It’s a Mary Maxim pattern. I measured the gauge and it seems okay. Could it be that the tension in my knitting was too loose? Is tension and gauge the same? I used worsted weight yarn and the needle size that the pattern called for. Do I just need to keep practicing to perfect my knitting overall? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
