how do the gauges of different stitches compare?
I'm just wondering -- let's say I am knitting a stockinette stitch at 4 stitches per inch. Would the following stitches give me a tighter or a looser gauge? 1x1 rib, moss stitch, double-moss, garter?
If I decide to do an afghan and want to make separate squares with different patterns, am I going to have to swatch each type of stitch I use to get the gauge?
Also, does everyone knit looser on round needles?
