I am knitting this sweater, and I'd like to change the garter stitch around the bottom of the sweater, around the neck and the cuffs of the sleeves to be a 2x2 rib instead. My main question is: the body of the sweater is knit on size 8s, and the instructions say to go to size 6s for the garter trim. Should I do the ribbing with size 6s, too, or should I do them on another size?

Thanks!

Usually ribbing is knit on smaller needles than the sweater to make snugger cuffs and around the bottom, so yeah, try it out with the 6s.

OK, thanks very much! I'm pretty much a n00b knitter, and I'm shocked that my sweater is coming along so well, so I don't want to get to the end and screw it up!
