Re: Best needle gauge for a newbie to start with?

go with what your pattern says and its called needle gauge, don't worry
and the gauge you want will change depending on how loose (or tight in my case, lol) you knit. that's why people swatch- so they can see if they match the pattern with the way they knit and the yarn they chose. (I'm bad, I just wing it)

I personally use the evie pants with a 4.0 mm (us6) and 5.0 mm (us8

have fun!
