I'm knitting a sweater with US10.

It's said that the needle size should go up one or two sizes. Is this to say that going up one size means US10.5, and two sizes is US 10.75? I have both here, and am thinking that moving to US11 would be too much.

In general, it would probably be good for all of us to know what to do with half-sized needles when it comes to this kind of thing (US 1.5, 2.5, too).

Thanks, and Happy New Year!

I used US10.75 for the shoulder seams, and all is well.

Just go, and you will be able to tell if it feels too small.

I guess I just answered my own question: I performed some mathematical ratios with the diameters of smaller needle sizes, and it looks like one size up from US 10 is US 10.5, and two sizes up is US 10.75. At least those are close. Some numbers I got are a little larger than the actual needle sizes, so I am going to err on the smaller side. Hope that makes sense!
