Vee Neck Button Vest
Now that the hoodie is finished (tomorrow I'm sewing it up so should have photos soon) I'm going to knit a vest.

The Tension (gauge to you Yanks) is:

16.5 sts and 22 rows to 10 cm (4 inch) over stocking st, using 5.50mm needles. Cast on 25 sts, work 34 rows stocking stitch.

So I did this and my tension square (gauge) is almost that of the pattern.

I get 16 sts and 21 rows - what do I do?? I think I need to go to the next size SMALLER needles, correct?

I love knitting - it's such a cockamamy challenge!

love and light - your Aussie friend, David
