Hello there knowledgeable knitters! I'm about to embark on a rather ambitious (for me) knitting project and I have a little question that I'd appreciate some help with please. It's a rather silly question, but when testing your gauge, are you supposed to measure your test square completely flat or 'relaxed' with the edges slightly curled?
For example, would you say this test square measures 4” flat...
...or 3.5” 'relaxed'?
Thanks in advance for your nuggets of wisdom and I hope you're all having a good weekend!
