Yet another gauge question.
I am wanting to knit a lace cowl and it's just not looking like the picture. This pattern is in the book "Kid's Knitted Hats" desgined by Cabin Fever.
For the material it states to use a light worsted weight yarn. I am using Caron Simply Soft. And it calls for size 6 (4mm) knitting needles.
For gauge it states Approx 5 sts = 4 in over lace pattern.
When I do my gauge I am getting about 20sts per 4 inches. And it just doesn't seem that using a light worsted weight yarn and size 6 needles with give you 5sts per 4 inches.
Is it just me or am I overthinking this.
Also their picture definitely looks like lace. Whereas mine is looking like an open rib stitch. Do I just need to block it?
I have looked on the website for corrections, but there is none for this pattern.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
