I am planning ahead for my big upcoming PF wholesale order. It's not going to happen right away, but it's going to take me some time to choose patterns and colors. I know pf gauge can vary by the skein. I'm curious about gauge range for the worsted weight. I think I'm going to do some KPS sweaters for the kids. Some patterns have a gauge of 16/st to 4 in, which should be fine, some are 18/st 4 in. Will I have trouble getting the second gauge? Also, I know it blooms and grows and swatching and washing is recommended first. If I just wash the yarn before knitting, swatch, and then check gauge,will that be accurate enough, or do I need to knit and wash before checking gauge?<br><br>
TIA!<br><br>
Okay, I pretty much answered part of my question by looking at a bunch of projects on Ravelry knit w/ PF--but I'm still wondering about the washing/swatching thing.
