Tension:


It is essential to check your tension before starting your garment.  If there are too many stitches to the pattern tension, it is too tight and you should change to a larger size needle.  If there are too few, your tension is too loose and you should change to a smaller size needle.

♥ The patterns in the 'Bargain Bin' will have a variety of defects, including creasing, bends, folds, stains, fading of the pages, knitters marks and notes, hole punches, but if you can work around the faults, the pattern will be readable, useable and with instructions clear.  They are sold at bargain prices to reflect the wear and tear condition.
