I found this great first sweater pattern that I am hoping to knit for my son and my niece. It is the the Cabin Fever Buttons Cardigan #606. It is knit top down with raglan sleeves that require no seaming. :yay: It is so cute and is just what I was looking for.
I found yarn that I really like but it is a bit lighter than was used in the pattern (I wanted to make lighter sweaters for autumn). So, my dilemma is how to adjust the pattern so that I can use the yarn I’ve chosen.
The pattern calls for dk that knits at 22 sts over 4". My yarn is coming up as 22 sts over 3.5". This is my first sweater and the pattern looks so easy but I just don’t know how to adjust things. The sample at my LYS was knit with the same yarn but I haven’t been able to ask the person that knit it how it was done.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can throw my way.
