The Difference Between Needle Size 3 and 4

I knit some K1P1 rib fabric with size 3 needles and some with size 4 needles.  The difference is subtle to the eye but evident when I handle the fabric.  Size 4 needles produce a softer fabric for this handspun.  Size 4 it is.  For a scarf, there is no problem reducing the number of stitches accordingly.
