when making a gauge swatch, do I knit knit knit all rows? Or do I make the stockinette stitch of alternating knit and purl rows?
The back of my pillow will be all knit
The fronto my pillow is this: http://www.knittingknonsense.com/b_cloth.html
A knit border, stockinette middle, and the letter B is knit.
How can I make an accurate gauge swatch for this? My pillow form is 12x12 and I want the front and back pieces to measure 12.5 x 12.5 each
I previously started this project on size 8 needles but don't like how it feels. I want to bump up to size 9 or 10 needles.
