This looked like a great pattern and I was expecting the best possible result. However I should have realized that something was amiss when I couldn’t Get the gauge right. With K the gauge was too large and with the J the gauge was too small. What a conundrum! So I wrote a text to the designer (who had promised to answer every question). No reply. Well foolish me I started the sweater again using the dimensions for size medium!! It was crazy large! I frogged it. Using my personal measurements I have nearly completed this project. While the sweater is suppose to be large toI must say this sweater pushes the limit and has frazzled my nerves. This is a gift that will never be given.
