Hi my name is Jackie

I have done my tension and got it right

what i would like to know is do i have to change the size of my needles when I do the ribbing on my garment ?

many thanks


Sometimes patterns call for a smaller needle size for ribbing and sometimes not. If you’re following a pattern, see if it recommends different size needles for the rib. It may also depend on your preference for a tighter or looser ribbing.
Can you give us a link to the pattern or a pattern name?

Womens Coat in Sirdar Sylvan Chunky (7486)

it only tell me to check my tension on the main part size needles and not the ribbing part

just need to know if you would change the size for the ribbing too ?

Simply gorgeous jacket!

Yes, if if I’ve changed the needle size for the main pattern in order to get gauge, then I also change the smaller needle used for ribbing. It’s not an exact science but if you went up a size for the larger needle, you could also go up a size for the smaller.

aww thank you for your help

I think i have it now

just hope it turns out ok
