I am in love with this sweater!
I have 2 issues though. The first is a conversion issue... I had to buy the yarn in worsted weight instead of DK to fit my budget and achieve the right color and texture. ANy advice on converting the pattern? I know I can probably knit a swatch and do the math but I"ve never converted a pattern before...any advice? Should I up the needle size a little too? I"m worried it may knit too tight on those #3's
My second is a size problem... if you notice, the girl in the picture has a somewhat spare figure. I do not. I wear a 38 D or DD depending on the brand. Does anyone have ideas for altering the pattern? I'm thinking I should start with the pattern to fit my chest and then make the lower body/waist area smaller. I want it not to be boxy or hang awkwardly off me.
Thanks in advance!
