This may be a slightly long and rambling question,
so if it's not clear, please let me know.
I have a pattern from this months Knit Today (a UK based magazine). For anyone who has access to it, the pattern is for Sexxxxy Legs, which are basically lace-up leg warmers.
No gauge is given in the pattern as, and I quote, 'they are designed to stretch to fit'. The recommended wool is RY Classic Cashsoft Aran on size 5mm/US8 needles. This wool normally takes size 4.5/US7. By coincidence, I had bought some RY Classic Cashcotton DK on sale earlier the same day, so I want to use this. The Cashcotton DK normally takes size 4mm/US6.
Now, as gauge shouldn't be an issue I'm not too worried, but I don't want to start then realise they are too small then having to start again, I was wondering if I should decrease the needle size to 4.5mm/US7. Or will this make them too small too?
Any help gratefully appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
