Four time's a charm, I hope, please help
I've purchased 3 different skeins of yarn for a pattern because the person didn't clarify what type to use. All 3 have not worked and I'm nearing the point I'm ready to toss the pattern aside. The pattern calls for size 8 needles and the gauge listed is 26 stitches per 14 cm. The second type of yarn I purchased I decided to check the gauge rather than just begin knitting. I only got 22 stitches per 14 cm. I would like to stick with the size 8 needles as I purchased brand new knitpick needles for this project. Can anyone direct me as to what type of yarn I should be looking for? I tried going bulky, but I went too bulky and now I'm stuck with a 3 skein of yarn that can't be used for this project. I'm very beginner and frustrated, so sorry for what might seem like a tedious and whiny question. Please help, I will be so grateful.
