Edit: As knitsnwovens‘ comment points out (thanks for catching my blip!), the table below actually lists the minimum number of stitches that each circ will accommodate, so I’m amending this post.
You know when you run across those notes on little scrap pieces of paper and you say, “Hey, I’ve been looking for that!” And at the time you scribble them down, think, “I’ll remember where I got this!”
Well, I just ran across this one, and with apologies, I do not remember the source. If anyone knows who the original author is, please let me know so I can give credit here (I’m pretty sure it came from a book).
This table lists the minimum number of sts required for each of four circular needles at the stated gauges. It’s actually better to have more than that so that you don’t have to stretch the stitches too much as you are knitting. As knitsnwovens‘ comment mentions, circ’s can actually accommodate a surprising number of stitches before the sts become too crowded to manage.
