Wee Cute Treasures Posted April 25, 2016 Share Posted April 25, 2016 Please will someone help me! I am a very experienced RL knitter and have successfully knit with 1mm needles and DMC Perle Cotton # 8. I have knit cushions and a little bunny, photo to be attached if I can! I recently knit a simple lace blanket using 1mm needles and #80 crochet/tatting cotton called Special Dentelles by DMC. I could handle this with no problems whatsoever. However, I would now like to knit even finer work, in particular a little throw or rug which will be either textured with stitch variation, simple lace pattern or stranded using a maximum of two colours per row. So my question is - would moving to 0.7mm needles make a difference in terms of stitches per inch? And..... what thread should I use with this size needle? Would the #80 crochet thread work up much smaller on the 0.7mm needles compared to the 1mm? I like the quality of the #80 crochet thread but is there a Venne Colcotton I should be using instead that would be finer? Will I get finer work from using smaller needles (ie 0.7mm) or by using finer thread and 1mm needles or both? Many thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
