    1898 hat pattern gauge help questions

    Hi grannysquare. You were right about me not counting each garter row for 2. I checked my gauge again and it is 17 sts per 4 inches in garter and 36 rows in 4 inches. But when i have tried the brim of the hat it keep falling off my head and the hat can stretch way too much like 36 inches across. It was way too loose .

    Socks questions

    Hi. I was wondering if you could help me understand some of the sock forumla online steps that are out there on ravelry? using needle 1, pick up and knit stitches equal to one quarter of your Sock Number from the side of your heel flap?😟 My Sock Number is 60, so I will pick up 15 stitches.?πŸ˜• Remember to pick up 1/4 of your Sock Number rof stitches (just like with needle 1).?πŸ€” Both of these should have stitches equal to a quarter of your Sock Number? Measure your foot from the back of your heel to the tip of your big toe (or whatever toe is longest)? Subtract 1 1/2 inches? repeat rnds 2 &3 until soles reaches 56,68 sts or equal to the total number of original sock stitches?

  11. Hi.πŸ™‚ I was wondering if you could help me with the gauge on this pattern. The link is here www.cas.seamenschurch.org/christmas-at-sea It is a free pdf pattern. The pattern gauge is 20 sts per 4 inches And row gauge is 24 rows per 4 inches Both in stockinette stitch. I got 19 sts per 4 inches And 23 rows per 4 inches in stockinette stitch Using a knitters pride us 7 16 inch circular needle and using caron cakes worsted weight yarn. The patterns 2nd gauge is 20 sts per 4 inches 36 rows per 4 inches both in garter stitch I got 18 sts per 4 inches in garter stitch and the row gauge I never got that yet. I have measured my across using a measuring tape and it's a little over 22 inches. I was wondering how to adjust or calculate the difference in both gauges? What do you think I should do, just do the pattern as is or not?
  12. Hi.πŸ˜€ I was wondering if this is true which i hope that it isn't. πŸ™In one of verypink knits videos she says that you cannot change a gauge in patterns such as for hats,mittens,and sweaters? The link is here for the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFMch0eAhn0 I have always thought that some people said online that a person could. I am sooo very disappointed about it .😞 What do you think?
