I’ve got a pattern for wrist warmers:
Drops Karisma wool is 50g=100m. I’m using a DK acrylic that I reckon is 50g=150m. So my yarn should be longer and thinner (slightly).
Their guage is 18tr = 10cm on 4.5mm hook.
I tried 4mm, then 3.5mm, now I’m down to 3.0mm and my swatch is still 11cm.
The 3mm hook was too small for this yarn, but my swatch is still out. Am I somehow making sloppy trebles?
