How do you know if you are knitting too tight/loose?
I'm kind of new to knitting, and I am still working on things like scarves and shawls so that gauge isn't too important, but I don't understand how you are supposed to be able to tell if you are knitting too tight or too loose?

How do you know if you need to go up a needle or down a needle? Is there a way to tell on just a simple scarf?

Thanks,

Carrie
