It is important to check your tension
before commencing the garment.

If there are too many stitches to 10
cm, then your tension is tight and you
will need to change your needle to a
larger size. If there are too few
stitches to 10 cm, then your tension
is loose and you will need to change
your needle to a smaller size.
