I'm hoping to start this pattern
soon, and have a question about guage and the needles that are suggested.
I've never really don't a guage swatch before (terrible, I know); I just typically use the needles that they suggest and my works turn out fine for me (granted, I've only done a few hats and scarves, nothing that really takes sizing). What's the best way to do a swatch? And if I do choose to go with say, a size 5 or maybe 9 needle due to cost constraints, how do I determine by how much to alter the pattern?
Thank you so much in advance!!!
