View Full Version : Question about needle size

Hey y'all

I'm making the Fiber Trends felted ballet slippers. Well, I'm about to start knitting them and I have a slight problem. The pattern calls for a 10.5 needle. I have a 10.5 (6 mm) and I have a 10.75 (7 mm). Which one would use?

I would swatch with both of them and use whichever one gave you the right gauge. :)

The 10.5 is the same as the pattern callls for. But try both to see that you get the right gauge so the slippers will come out the right size.
