When trying to figure out the weight of my handspun yarn, I usually rely on visual comparisons to commercial yarns. Occasionally, I’ll bother with a grams/yds comparison.
I want to be extra careful and rigorous with my freshly spun batch of Texel. So I buckled down and knitted up a bunch of swatches with needles US7 to US10. Each swatch is knitted with the same number of stitches and rows.
What may be a little hard to see in the photo are the t-pins I inserted marking out 4-inch squares on each swatch.
Which one of these needle sizes wins?
