15 vs 16 stitches over 4 inches..
Gauge swatches aside for now (they will be done later when I find a yarn)...My cardigan pattern calls for worsted or heavy worsted at a gauge of 16 stitches over 4 inches. I'm trying to find a yarn and I notice several that have a gauge of 15 stitches over 4 inches. Is this close enough that by changing needle size you could get gauge? Would the needle size be larger or smaller?

Thanks for your help and opinions. I just haven't made enough things that require getting gauge to know all this yet. :rollseyes:

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
