It's a pattern out of a book called, Ready Set Knit - Fringed Top (name of pattern) calls for size 19 - or size to obtain gauge - I've been knitting gauages now for 3 days and I'm ready to start or switch to another pattern. I have switched from Yarn Bee - ITALIA - florentine (on the label it says use 8mm/US size 110 to Yarn Bee SOFT ILLUSION-Super Bulky - sumptous (label says 15mm US 19). The 2 lgst. needles I have are US 15 and US 17 - still to 4" I am getting alot more stitches than 5 1/2 - seems if you used needles much larger it would be to holey to wear in public?? Right now knitting on size 17 (stockinette st) looks like I am going to get about 7 st = 4 inches and 10 rows over 4 inches - maybe I can double this super bulky and get what I want? I really want this to be wearable and am in South Georgia where it gets REALLY hot - I am not opposed to switching to another pattern - was about to start looking when I saw this post. Please give me some input, and I hope I answered what you asked me!
