I’ve been searching through past posts to find an answer for my question but, I haven’t been able to really get an exact number…
I decided to knit the capelet today and I CO the number in the pattern, and I’ve reached the increases. I’m not knitting this for anyone in particular (I just wanted to take on the challenge of knitting an actual garment) nor will I be knitting it for myself (I’m a guy). I don’t have a female available to measure the capelet on. [B]What would be a good/standard amount of increases to do?[/B]
It looks like so far it’s leaning a bit on the small side and I have a few girl friends who I’d like to model the FO… I believe they generally wear size X-small or small shirts… does that help? I really don’t understand girl-sizing.
If it helps, I was helping one friend try on jeans and she was joking about how she hasn’t fit into a size 0 since high school… and then after trying on a few pairs she actually ended up fitting into a size 0 (it was a happy, happy day for her)… but, she generally wears 1 or 2 sizes above it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
