Swatching is NOT optional!

There are many variables when knitting.

 

  1. Different colors of the SAME yarn may knit to a different gauge
  2. Different dye lots of the SAME color of the SAME yarn may knit to a different gauge
  3. Different models of the SAME gauge knitting machine may knit to a different gauge.
  4. The SAME size knitting needle from a different manufacturer may knit to a different gauge
  5. Different people, using the exactly the SAME needles, machines, and yarns may get get different gauges
   
The bottom line … do a TENSION SWATCH and adjust if necessary.
