This page provides generic materials for working out changes in gauge.
To change gauge, you will need to work out the multiplier. When you have worked out your multiplier, you can use a spacing table to decide how to knit the gauge change transition.
On this page there are two versions of the materials: manual and interactive.
new st/10cm ÷ old st/10cm or r/10cm = multiplier
The interactive version is an Excel (.xls) file with several sheets.
First, 4 spacing tables - choose the relevant one for the treatment/gauge change you want to work.
Each spacing table incorporates a multiplier tool:
Then, there are 2 sheets with interactive calculators:
Note: The interactive tables use a special Knitting Symbols font. In order for the tables to display these symbols, you need to install this font to your computer. (If you don't want to do this, use the pdf versions of the tables, available to download below.)
