ok, i am using a pattern to make some wool pants for my son. the gauge should be 5 st/inch, and it says to use a size 8 needle, but i am using size 7 for a better look.
anyways, i went to a specialty yarn store, and the woman was showing me yarn that said it was for size 5 needles. it was super skinny.
i am so confused! how do i know what yarn to b uy?
