This is a bit difficult. Size one or two needles to knit with sport yarn or #4 is impossible. What is up with this? What other comments have there been? I'd like to know.

The pattern says:
Needles: 1 (2.25 mm) OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE

I tend to knit loose and usually use smaller needles. But you should choose the size, which allows you to achieve the correct gause.

This is a question about the Chevron Jacket matching this skirt but the question is the same. How do you CO 89st knit in cheveron patt for 35 rows...change to knit rib over 75st with no decreases?
