I am going to make a toddler size felted backpack. The pattern calls for needle size 10.5. The pattern gauge is unfelted 13 sts=4ins garter st. With the 10.5 needle my gauge was 14 sts=4in and with the size 11 my gauge was 12 sts=4in :wall: . I am leaning towards using the size 11. What is you experience and/or advice? :shrug:

Thanks

Since it doesn't have to fit and it's felted, I'd go with the larger needle, too.
