Thanks, that all makes sense.
Now for today's question.
I've just CO a scarf and knitted 2 rows of loops (they are so cute - I've not seen anyone here use them http://www.crazyauntpurl.com/archive..._is_the_ne.php
) and then just garter stitch, but I am using 6mm kneedles even though the yarn says I should be using 8mm.
So its only a scarf and I can just keep CO til I get the desired width and knitting til I get the desired length, but I want to know will I use more yarn doing it this way? What effect does using smaller needles have?
