Notes

Swatch
Swatched flat (with floats) in different color combos and went with the color and texture contrast of this pair. Also swatched this pair on its own in the round for a good feel for the amount of negative ease I wanted to account for in the gauge.

Gauge
a slight but snug negative ease is included in my gauge
20-stitch round swatch
1-row stripes in the round
20 sts = 12 cm
3 rows = 1 cm

Measurements
Pattern wrist measurement 6 3/4”
Desired wrist measurement 6”
Widest point of hand 7”

Pattern modifications
Pattern wrist measurement 6 3/4”
Desired wrist measurement 6”
I need to go down by 11% or 4 or 5 sts. I’ll do an even 6.
CO 34 sts, patt will dec by 8sts to 26sts at wrist = 15.6cm at my gauge, = just a bit over 15.24cm wrist size. Perfect!
