Question about needle size
Hey y'all

I'm making the Fiber Trends felted ballet slippers. Well, I'm about to start knitting them and I have a slight problem. The pattern calls for a 10.5 needle. I have a 10.5 (6 mm) and I have a 10.75 (7 mm). Which one would use?

I would swatch with both of them and use whichever one gave you the right gauge.

The 10.5 is the same as the pattern callls for. But try both to see that you get the right gauge so the slippers will come out the right size.
