Since my size is "both" kid and adult size, should I be aiming for 6 or 4.5 sts/inch? I've done my gauge in Caron SS and am at 5.0 on size 7s and 5.5 on size 8s? I've never really had to do a gauge for size before...and I need to know which I should try for larger or smaller? Or is this yarn ok for your pattern? I have other yarn even have some sports weight if I need to change to that
