This pattern requires a very tightly worked tension. Whilst the recommended yarn has a tension of 24 sts to 10 cm (4 inches) using 3mm needles over stocking stitch, some knitters seem to be having difficulties achieving the required pattern tension with other yarns of the same standard tension. Basically the Filatura Di Crosa Luxury seems to allow itself to be knitted tighter than many other yarns of the same weight and I would suggest if you are not a tight knitter you may have to move down to a 4ply (fingering) yarn to achieve the required tension.
