I wonder if you can help me with my February Lady Sweater. I haven't even cast on yet. The pattern calls for 18 sts to 4" on 5.0mm needles. However, I got 18 sts to 4" on 4.5mm needles with the yarn I am using (acrylic aran). I have been trying out the lace pattern in a swatch, but it doesn't look right. Am I doing something wrong?
I am not such an expert knitter. I am currently knitting a top, and the pattern says "continue until armhole measures 15cm". Is this 15cm from the start of the armhole to the end of the work, or 15cm diagonally? Maybe I'm being a bit duh!
I'd like to knit a sweater which is form fitting with puff sleeves and a round neckline, on which I would have a tie neck. I am an intermediate knitter. I would prefer to knit it flat rather than in the round, and the sleeves separately rather than with DPNs. If anyone can help me find a pattern (preferably a free pattern), I'd really appreciate it!
