23 sts/10 cm with needles 4.0 mm.

I’m knitting a size 5 with wrong gauge and hoping it will turn out to be something between size 2 & 3. I followed pattern and the size is perfect but length a little bit on the short side.

I choosed to make set-in sleeves. With needles 4.0 mm I picked up 76 sts and worked short rows to shape sleeve cap. I followed written directions from my ‘Audrey in Unst’ pattern. I made decreases every 10th row. Made cuff ribbing on needle 3.75.


  • I lowered the front neck - a few rows after the fifth tambourine I BO stitches and then followed pattern in length.
  • I made a tubular BO for the neck ribbing. Turned out very neat (see last picture).
