Reading some of your questions makes me feel a real novice as I am unable to assist with an answer to your Knitting problems.
I have a next project lined up, a classique cotton Dk stylecraft cardigan using cotton dk
I find it difficult to understand the tension squares to aid me in the future to get these correct and understand them better.
How big does each tension square need to be? bigger than 4inches/10cm so I can measure the square to 4inches?
The tension square for this cardigan pattern is 22sts and 28 rows to 10cm,4inches over stocking stitch pattern on 4mm needles or size required. 20sts and 30 rows to 10cm, 4 inches over pattern on 4 mm needles or size required to give the correct tension. Is this instructing me to do two tension test one in stocking stitch and one in pattern stitch. (the pattern stitch is k3 k2tog yfwd k1 sl k1 psso k7 rep to last 8 k2tog yfwd, k1, yfwd sl k1 psso k3) As the cardigan has these two in the design.
Thank you in advance
