Hi a newbie here
I have a pattern that calls for 20 stitches = 4" on #7 needles
I have yarn that I love and want to use for the pattern. It is Stacy Charles Bunny print that suggests using #9 needles and 13 stiches = 4".
So I tried using the #7 needles but had 14 stitches =4"
I kept going down until I got to #4 needles (smallest I have) but I'm still not getting 20 stitches = 4" and the knitting is tight and I'm afraid it will be stiff for a garment.
Am I on the wrong track here?
Is it not going to be possible to get this yarn to work for this pattern?
Feel free to reply with as much detail as you can because I really want to learn and sometimes knitting seems like a foreign language to me.
