We recommend that you do a tension swatch before starting your project
The success of your finished garment depends on tension. Check this carefully before you begin to knit. If there are fewer stitches to the 10 cm [4 ins] than stated, your tension is too loose; use smaller needles. If there are more stitches your tension is too firm; use larger needles.
