I’m a crocheter who has reciently decided to take up knitting.
I want to knit a scarf (I’ve done two VERY simple ones already), but I can’t seem to get the gage right. I’ve tried two different sized needles (the recommended seven and then eight) and it still comes out too small. I don’t remember for the seven, but eight comes out to 4.5 stitches per inch rather than 4, so it is very slight. The scarf isn’t elaborate, so would it make sense to just go ahead and knit it and have it come out slightly smaller or continue to try different needles until I can get the right gage? I mean, if I were making something like a hat, I’d assume the latter, but I am not sure how terribly a slightly off gage would impact a simple scarf.
