Remember needle size is only a guide! NOTE! To maintain the knitting tension, it can help to purl twisted instead of purl, or every 2nd of 4th row worked with twisted purl.

Ridge/Garter stitch (back and forth on needle): 1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.
Ridge/Garter stitch (in the round): 1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.
