Tension problem
Can anyone help with checking my tension, I am knitting a child's cardigan & the wool is double knitting. The pattern tension suggest 22sts & 29 rows to 4''. No matter how many different size needles I use I can't seem to get 22 sts to measure 4". Any suggestions.

What gauge are you getting? And what is the yarn called for in the pattern? You could knit another size of the pattern taking your sts/inch times the measurements wanted and finding the size closest to that number of stitches, adjusting for length. Make sure you CO about 30 sts because you shouldn't use the edge sts in measuring; they're a different size than the center sts and will curl under.
