ok, I've knitted up my first swatch on my 3.5mm needles.

I got 7.5 rows and 6 sts per ince.

Doing the math with my husband (ok.. mainly him) we think I would need to cast on 60 sts to get the same width for the middle size pattern. (how many inches would 82 sts give at 8.5sts per inch by them and then how many of my sts would give the same width)
I did my gauge on the 3.5mm because that is the smallest size that is recommended by the yarn I'm using.

Does this sound right to you? Or am I going the wrong way with adjusting the pattern?
