I’ve been knitting for a while now, but this still bugs me. Ok, I am knitting knitty.com’s Dashing for my boyfriend. His hands are huge, so I am trying to make sure this thing will fit. Well, the fit test went well yesterday (when I started it), but now that I am almost done, his hand got stuck and - he’s not here right now so I can’t test how it fits -
I measured the circumference and it comes out to be just about what it should be for the SMALLER size, but I am knitting the larger size. I checked my gauge before I started with 4 different pairs of needles and used the ones I got gauge with - which were my US 4s.
I checked the length, and it’s supposed to measure to 9.75 inches, but mine is about 11 inches! UGH. This annoys me to no end! How can it be smaller AND longer at the same time??? I’m using worsted weight yarn! and I got gauge. WTH.:whoosh:
