I’d like to make the Rumpelstiltskin’s Toddler Jacket in Knitter’s Stash, but I can’t for the life of me get the gauge. I have a couple of skeins of Burly Spun I’d like to use, and even with size 17 needles I can’t approach their 6 3/4 sts =4". The directions call for Drop Spindle Chenille Tape and size 13 needles. Can anyone help? I checked the errata, and the gauge is apparently correct.
If it isn’t possible to use the Burly Spun with this pattern, I’d love an equally simple toddler jacket pattern that would allow me to use it.
I’m a beginner with a couple of small projects behind me, and this looks perfect for a next one.
