Hand-Dyed Sideways Garter Cardigan

    Newer Older

    Pattern: DROPS Jacket in Alpaca (rav link)
    Yarn:Hello Yarn Sock in Kale and Pickle
    Needle: size 2 US
    Gauge: I was off by a bit- 24 sts. per 4" instead of 26, and this produced what seems like a sweater for a one year old, rather than 1-3 months, which is the size I knit.

      This is lovely - like something a little sprite would wear. This is when I wish kids clothes would look good in my size...

      I think the sizing for that pattern may be off. At least, when I was trying to knit a 0-3 (before I realized I wouldn't have enough yarn), it seemed huge.

      I think it's off, too. My gauge wasn't far enough off to make that much of a size difference.

      Want me to send you a one year old to try it on? If I put her on FedEx, I imagine she'd make it before 10 on Monday.
