My pattern calls for using a size 8 needle, the 4x4 swatch should be 18 stiches across and 26 rows.
When I did the swatch with the size 8 the 4x4 came out to be 18 across and 32 rows. How can this be???
If I up the needle to 9 my width will increase and I might make the 26 rows.
What would you do? The pattern calls for a certain lenght not a certain amount of rows.
This just doesnt' make sense to me. The yarn is supposed to be a worsted weight, but it feels more like a baby weight to me.
