i'm thinkin they musta had one TIGHT gauge lol. Cause mine's really not loose, but it's not tight-tight either. Just able to slide on the needles with somewhat of an ease. I'll try it both ways tho, I suppose
Because I could be wrong.
The other gauge they gave me is the most important one (because the majority of the hoodie is knit in that way), so I know that's supposed to be what it is. The garter stitch is on the bottom, cuffs, and the actual hoodie.
