Here are some tips to keep in mind when you’re knitting these for the first time

  • Check your gauge, all fingering weight yarns have different thickness and sizes. Some can be on the thinner side or thicker.
    Notes on gauge, if you have too many stitches you need to go up a needle size. If you don’t have enough stitches you need to go down a size needle.

Don’t want to knit double stranded? No worries you can use any worsted weight yarn instead.
