best needle size for scarf
I'm knitting a scarf made of wool with a bulkiness of 5. It's varigated yarn and I'm using a size 7 needle. It's looking great...but I was wondering if I should be using a bigger needle. I'm doing it in stockinette stitch.
I'm using a size 9 needle on a similiar bulky yarn for a quick Holiday scarf. I'm just knitting it all the way...but I tend to like how it is turning out.
Besides the suggested needle size on the yarn wraps, is there another way to figure out if other sized needles could/should be used for a project?
