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.
