Oh dear, I’m in a pickle again :??
I want to start a pattern for a summer top, I’ve got all my gear together and the tension sample instructions are confusing (well, to me anyway!)
There are 2 needle sizes required for the pattern:
The band is done in rib with a 4mm needle
The main pattern is done with a 6mm needle
Fine so far, except that the tension guide only says
33 stitches to 8 inches in stocking stitch
As neither the rib nor the pattern are knitted up in stocking stitch I can’t tell which needle size to choose.
Is there an understood principle about which needle to choose for the tension sample when you have a choice?
Help is appreciated.
I’ve got 4 projects sitting in the bag knitted up and still not sewn, and another project 1/3 completed so I feel this is a good time to start something else! I’m sure I’m not the only one who hates sewing up!
