I've looked in the other threads but can't seem to see where this question has been answered before. I'm either not searching by the right term or too mired in details to understand what I'm reading... or it's a really silly question and I should swatch it<G>.
I have worsted weight yarn that says 18 stitches for 4 inches on US 8. If I go up in needle size to say an 11 or 13, does the number of stitches per linear inch (the width) change? What I"m tryong to get to is whether I need to adjust the number of stitches I cast on.
I can see how the row count to reach a 4 inch swatch would be lower.
Is there a method to calculate / estimate how going up in needle size would impact the gauge on the width or would it?
