Hand-Dyed Sideways Garter Cardigan

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.

    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.
  • Adrian 6y

    I think it's off, too. My gauge wasn't far enough off to make that much of a size difference.
  • Jennie 6y

    love it!
  • Rocket Scientist 6y

    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.
