Needle size question
I am looking at a pattern (specifically this one) that calls for size 4 needles. The pattern is for baby socks, but they are toddler size. I was wondering if I used a size 3 needle, would they come out a bit smaller? My baby is due anytime and those would just be huge on him.

Thanks!

Yes, using a smaller needle would make the sock smaller.

By the way, congratulations on your soon-to-be-born little boy! Is it your first? I have two little boys who are now 2 and 4 and they are awesome! :D
