I have found a cute little bunny pattern my ds wants me to make for him. I have some left over chunky homespun yarn i'd like to use. The pattern says:
Step 1: Knit the body
Cast on enough stitches for about 6 inches. [Example, in sportweight yarn on size 5 needles, cast on 35 stitches.]
Work plain in stockinette (knit 1 row, purl 1 row) until length is same as width.
How do I determine the correct gauge for the yarn and needles i have? I have size 8 needles and the chuncky yarn. TIA!
