Let’s say you were knitting a worsted weight striped shawl.
After finishing the stripes you move on to the border with the main color. But once you get into the border you decide you want to make some changes to the pattern and rip the whole thing out. You go down a needle size, and switch from stockinette stitch to garter stitch.
You reknit the pattern, and stop before you begin working on the border. Like before, you end with a contrast color stripe. Because you’ve gone down a needle size and switched from stockinette to garter stitch you’ve likely used less of the contrast color yarn than before, right?
How much less?
I’ll accept guesses until Friday, and will send a skein of something pretty to whoever guesses closest to the right amount.
Please post your guess in either inches or centimeters – not in yards.
