I need advice. I’m knitting a throw I found on Lion Brand Yarn and I’m obviously doing something wrong. It’s the Magic Carpet Throw and some blocks look like Fair Isle patterns.
The questions is, I did the swatch with one strand and it came out to 4" as required (after I upped the needle size from 7 to 9). When I work the square with two strands of yarn it’s no longer the proper size. I’ve started the same square for the third time and it still isn’t the proper size even trying to keep the yarn very loose. Anyone have a suggestion or comment? (yarn is wool ease by Lion Brand seems to have a lot of give). I did email Lion and the only response I got was the swatch should be the same size with one or two strands. I’d like to know what else I can do. The pattern has a border so at this point I’ll be making it a little wider!
Thank you in advance
