When guidelines for yarn size are given in "wraps per inch," what does that mean? By the way, I'm new to this forum (my first posting) but I've been reading several threads all day. What a nice bunch of "knitwits!"
Thanks Boogie for the link. But (and this may be a silly question) but what is being wrapped? Does it mean that if i wrapped something (like a needle) with the yarn, then I would count the number of wraps lying side by side to make an inch?
Granny, yes that's exactly what you do. The picture Nancy posted shows it quite well. You can even buy a yarn gauge that has a one-inch wide notch so you don't have to worry about the yarn slipping while you're trying to count.
Now to go check out that pattern!
