I’ve made a tension square (for this project) – it took three attempts. I started with 4mm needles, then 5mm and finally achieved gauge with 6mm needles. I’m using a lighter yarn than the pattern calls for, but Jo Sharp told me she was experimenting with this idea.
I finished my tension square. It works out at 8 stitches per inch, which according to my master pattern means I need to cast on 48 stitches.
This yarn seems quite tricky with which to knit; it’s very slippery and I keep putting the needle through the strand – I guess it’s meant to be a challenge.
