Thank You Yellowness for your VERY informative post.
I really appreciate it. :D
Ya, I had read that too somewhere...as far as the gauge goes. If the pattern doesn't specify how to knit up the swatch, to do it in St st.
So....if I go ahead and knit up the swatch in St st. I should be able to do it on my size 3 dpn's? (Cuz I don't have size 3 straight needles).
Ok, I think I understand what you mean as far as doing the St st on the dpns. So umm knit the first row..then slide it to the other side instead of turning the work then purl? Then slide to other side and knit? Am I hearing you right?
Thanks again for your help.
