Ok.. I found a cowl that I can knit up with this yarn. Well sort of. It still will not match gauge. Pattern calls for 11 sts. for 2 inches and I get 10 on a size 9 needle. Pattern calls for a size 6 needle. Big difference there.
I can't find any patterns at all to use up this yarn. Has to be something fairly small - cowl, scarf etc.. Long story on this yarn from hell.,....
But I figured a cowl doesn't have to be perfect gauge but I would like it to fit and on the bigger side.
How many stitches should I add onto this pattern to make up for that 1 stitch less in gauge?? I could go up a needle size to an 10 but I don't have any 10's and the 9 is about as big as I want to go as far as the knitted looking portion of it.
It's an easy no pattern type cowl.
