Notes

4/26/2014
Knitted a test swatch last night, given that I ignored the pattern’s instructions about yarn weight and bought a worsted weight instead of a sport weight yarn (REBEL. Or maybe I just don’t know what I’m doing.). The pattern specifies that “the blocked gauge of 4” squared is approximately 17 stitches across by 27 rows long.” Mine was 16 stitches by 19 rows, assuming I counted correctly. I think what this means is that I’m going to make the small, following the pattern exactly, and expecting it to turn out a bit bigger, which is fine because I’m actually in the medium size range.

If all else fails, it’ll make a sweet cape for my niece.

Got almost all of the way through this and then decided I wasn’t a fan of the style. C’est la vie!
