Ok, so I figured I'd do a test run on a little wool yarn before I cast on during the opening ceremonies. Well, I'm thinking I'll need to go down a few sizes on the needles. the pattern calls for a 10.5 and they seem huge!
My question is, when you are planning on felting a piece after you knit it, is it normally a looser knit or should it be tight? Should I just go with what the patterns calls for in needle size? I'm using a different brand of yarn so I don't know if that's what's causing it to be so loose. My wool is more like a sport weight yarn but it is 4 ply. Here is the pattern I'm doing http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html
