Ok, so I decided that Fetching
from Knitty would be my first foray into knitting in the round. Seems like an ok thing for a beginner. The problem I've run into is with the gauge. It says "21 sts / 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch". I didn't use the specific yarn it calls for, but I did use a worsted weight yarn. My swatch ended up being 3 1/2 by 4 inches. Do I need to use bigger needles or a different yarn or what?
Also, is there a huge difference between cable co and long-tail co?
