Conversion from Cottons Patent to Vbed gauge

To convert from Cottons Patent gauge (G*, needles per 1- inch) to V-bed gauge (E, needles per inch)

1 Convert from 1- inches to 1 inch needle bed width.

2 In the gauge range G9 and below, reduce the resultant E gauge by 1. Above G 9 reduce the resultant E gauge by 2. This is to fit commercial practice in flat knitting, where a slightly coarser gauge is preferred.

Example: Convert G9 and G21 fully-fashioned (needles per 1- inches) to V-bed flat E gauge (npi)
