okay, i LOVE the gatsby girl pullover in the new IK mag. -- found here: http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/preview/2006_fall.asp
but i can't bear spending $80 for a sweater, so i want to substitute yarns. but my problem is this:
1) IK says use rowan cashshoft DK -- gauge 28sts & 36rows/4" on sizes 4 and 3 needles.
2) Rowan says that cashsoft DK's gauge is actually 5.5sts/1" or 22sts/4" on size 6 needles.
so do i buy a DK weight substitute and knit really tightly on size 4 needles? do i buy a fingering weight yarn and knit regularly on size 4 needles? is there a possibility IK made a typo and really i should be on the larger needles?
or if anyone has any specific yarn subsitution suggestions that would be amazing.
thanks in advance.
