Re: How to check gauge when substituting to a finer yarn?

What are you making? In some things, such as scarves and afghans, gauge isn't terribly important, but obviously a garment has to fit, and so it's more important in those cases. As a matter of fact, gauge isn't terribly important in baby clothes for a baby shower, as they grow so fast that there are several different sizes that can be given (although they do have to be at least big enough for a newborn).
