After I finish working on the blanket I have on the needles, I’d like to make hubby a sweater but I’m thinking I want to try making something wearable for me first. It’s for practice is all
I have come across some patterns that have ribbing and use smaller needles for the ribbing and then larger ones for the main body of the garment (usually stockinette stitch on the body).
Why is that? Is that because ribbing tends to be knit more loosely and you have to compensate? I’m just curious.
