   Yarn Tensions

Following, you will find a list of yarns with tensions that Sandee has used on many of her garments.  This is only a guideline to help you.  You may have to go up or down a number depending on your machine and the way it knits.  Some of the yarns are no longer being manufactured but we know that many of you still have them and may need the information.  You will notice on the cottons she knits them at a loose tension, then she will wash and dry the swatch so the cotton will shrink and loft, then steam.  Make sure you treat the garment the same as you treated your swatch.

If using your garter carriage for ribbing, I usually go down 2 full numbers tighter than the main bed garment tension for ribbing.
