Ok, so I’ve been knitting random stuff since I learned how a month(ish) ago, but I haven’t done anything that really needed sized until today. I knit my son a simple garter stitch hat (with dpns, go me!).
I decided after the fact to try to measure my gauge so I get a feel of how I’m knitting. I used “bulky” wool yarn and 10 1/2 needles It seems I have roughly 30 rows, and 25 stitches to 4inx4in.
What, if anything, does this mean, and will I ever be able to know what size needles to use for gauge?
I’ve also been making a bunch of washcloths (darn but they can be addicting, hope my family appreciates a useful gift this holiday season!) and I’m using size 6 needles with the worsted weight cotton, because it looked super loose with size 7s, and they are coming out roughly the size given by the pattern (many end up 9x11 or thereabouts).
