Guage question
I have a Norwegian pattern, in English, for dolls clothes. However, I am used to a guage which states xstitches X xrows = 4"/10cms. The guage on this pattern says 30stitches = 10cms. I have used the recommended needles and same ply wool and yet my 30 stitches measure much less than 10cms. I have tried using 3.25 and 3.50 needles and actually the result is more or less the same, about 7-8cms.

Can anyone explain what, if anything, I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
