2. If you know your gauge , you can figure out how many stitches
you need to make a certain number of inches:
Stitches per inch times inches equals stitches
ga X in = sts
5 sts/in X 40 in = 200 sts
This formula is the basic one you need for designing your own stuff. Say you want to make a scarf that you want to be 8 inches wide. You do your gauge swatch and find out that YOUR yarn on YOUR needles is 4 ½ stitches per inch. So, 8 times 4 ½ equals 36 stitches.
The connection between the needle and the syringe can play an important role in the selection process. Some syringe-needle combinations are detachable while others are fixed in which the needle is permanently attached to the syringe. For instance, many diabetic syringe needles are non-detachable and these type of syringe-needle combos are less expensive. More syringe and needle combinations are manufactured to be detachable, allowing more flexibility and choices between what syringe you use and what needle you attached to the syringe. There are several different types of connection hubs or syringe tips. The most popular syringe tips include Luer Lock tips, slip tips, eccentric tips and catheter tips. See Syringe & Needle Tip Selection for an infographic displaying the different types of syringe tips. Each syringe tip has a corresponding needle hub that connects with it. These connections are not interchangeable. In other words, you cannot connect a Luer Lock needle hub to a catheter tip syringe. If you purchase a slip tip syringe, you should also purchase a slip tip type needle.
