Question about Sewing Machines
I have a pattern for 12mth old babies. The instructions are for a 5 ply using 3.2 needles. I want to knit for 2yr old using
First of all try a guage/tension swatch. Cast on 25 stitches, use 5,5 mm needles and knit stocking stitch for 4 ins. This should tell you if the pattern will work with these needles and yarn.
Count your stitches over the 4 ins and see wht you have to the inch. This is your guage oe=r tension then check with your pattern to see what the guage/tension is.
To change a pattern this drastically needs an experienced knitter
If it is the pattern only that you want. then find a pattern for 8 ply and use the stitch count on the original pattern and modify for the new pattern.I wish you luck.

are you using a stretch twin needle; without one you'll get skipped stitches. However, the feed sounds more like a feed dog issue. Have you lowered the feed dogs for any reason? Will it sew on a woven cotton okay? If yes, but not feeding the knit then you could try turning up the presser foot pressure and see if that helps with the feed.
If you look across the needle plate with the presser foot removed and manually turn it through a stitch sequence, can you see the feed dogs coming up above the needle plate??
