I have a pattern that calls for size 4.5mm needles with worsted weight yarn, or 4mm needles with DK. I only have 4mm needles and worsted yarn and I want to start now. So are the needles more important for getting the size right or the yarn?
ie - would it be better to use the worsted instructions and go up a size or two as the needles are smaller, or use the DK instructions and do the size I want (or smaller)? Will the larger yarn on the correct needles make the garment bigger, or will it be a similar size but just heavier and tighter?
Has anyone experimented with this before and knows what will happen, or should I just order new needles and be patient?
