About 7/16" Gauge with JaNae Yagi: 

Why is the 7/16” gauge awesome?

Because it is practically perfect with a single strand of worsted (medium) weight yarn! They work so well together that I get excited just thinking about knitting things in the 7/16” gauge!

7/16" most closely equals 4.5mm (US size 7) or 5mm (US size knitting needles and is perfect for converting knitting patterns that request this needle size.

When you use traditional knit (“u” wrap, “flat” knit or “true” knit) stitches it produces a wonderful fabric that knits up much faster than 3/8” gauge and gives you stitches that are remarkably similar in size and use. It’s perfect for everything from hats, gloves, scarves, slippers and bags to items for your home like dishcloths, washcloths, pillow covers and blankets. It is my go-to gauge for all of these items and absolutely one of my all-around favorite gauges ever!

As an avid loom knitter and pattern designer, I am so glad that Cindwood has added the 7/16" gauge to their collection.
