Re: Gauge Problem

I was taught that gauge (stitches per inch - width) was more
important than rows per inch. Most patterns I have seen will
tell you to knit so many inches to armhole not number of rows.
If the pattern says inches to armhole then I would do that or
if pattern tells you to end with a certain row, do that. Hope
this helps.
