A new gauge for a new project.
Sirri 2-ply on needles 4.5 mm.
18 stitches and 24 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Editing to say, that when I knitted in the round, I had 15 stitches for 10 cm. Very big difference.
This turned out to be my Aftur sweater
I took a three hour course today in different knitted edges apart from the usual rib.
Here are my small knitting samples. And notice the tags. I find this is so clever. Do not sew in the ends, but use them to bind a tag with a short explanation of yarn, needles, method or whatever you need.
The teacher was Louise Klindt from Denmark.
The yarn is Snældan 5-ply, and the colour is Silver Gray 2.
Knitted on 6 mm needles.
10×10 cm is 13.5 stiches and 18 rows.
Knitted on 8 mm needles.
10×10 cm is 12.5 stiches and 16 rows.
And I have to say, gauges are not my favorite thing, but I am planning a cardigan from scratch, and it has to be done properly, so here it is:
My gauge in Sirri 2-ply, needle 3 mm : 22 sts and 30 rows = 10×10 cm
So far so good, and now the fun can begin
