To Swatch or not to Swatch
That is the question that you must answer. We are using a slightly smaller yarn than what Melissa recommends. We all know the number one rule - swatch first (and I will not advise otherwise). Gems Worsted wants to knit up at about 4.5 sts/inch on a US 7. I recommend swatching just to determine if you like the feel of the fabric. Record the results of your swatch (as far as sts/inch and rows/inch). If you are interested in determining how much smaller your throw will be, we can determine that with a little math.
