I bought a pattern for a woman’s jacket made with DeAire yarn. Here’s a link on Ravelry for it:
I’m using 2 strands of Caron’s One Pounder yarn together as a substitute and did get the gauge of 9 sts for 4 in. Anyway, the size I’m making is the 3rd one (42) and the pattern is worked all in one piece until the underarms. The instructions state that for this pattern, I’m supposed to cast on 133 sts and start the bottom ribbing around the whole thing (fronts and back together).
BUT, according to the gauge, 133 sts would equal around 60 inches!!! This is NOT anywhere close to 42". Am I doing something wrong? Or is my math “off”?? When I started this on circular needles I held up to myself after I’d knit a few inches past the ribbing and saw that it was HUGE! Again, NOT just an inch or 2 off but waaaaay over.
THANKS for any help you can give!!!
