Ok, I hope I can word this so everyone will understand. If I have a scarf pattern that calls for 22 stitches on size 11 needles, but I want to make the scarf more narrow and a thicker material (the yarn is pretty thin) how should I change my needles to give me the effect I want? Should I use smaller or large needles? I also want to make the most of the yarn. The pattern says that it should make a 30 inch scarf (from one ball of yarn; the pattern calls for two). I want to make it longer than that. Should I consider using another ball or should I stick to the pattern, cutting the number stitches CO in half?
I hope everyone understands this. If not, I am going to be lost!
