I have a funny feeling that your situation is going to repeat itself with me!  Ha ha...I know I am going to make big mistakes.  There are so many stitches on this needle that I don't even know if they are twisted.  If they are, I am going to have to figure out what to do...I do not want to cast on again.  That was miserable.  I did the crochet cast on...much better than the figure 8, but still not fun.  I about 4 rows into the bottom hem.  As for the sizing, it might be big.  I don't know.  I am making the larger size, because of the bust size and I usually wear a size 14-16.  I was thinking of making the second to the last size, because I am planning on losing weight, but I went for the largest.  I hope it not humongous.

hmm, not to scare you but i have about a 46 inch bust and so far my 46 inch sweater is looking a little bit big, but i'm okay with that, of course it all depends on gague, i'm getting almost perfect gague

Superstitch,

How far along are you on your sweater?  Is it really big around the bottom band?  I am wondering if I should start decreasing around while I am still doing the band to get to the next size down.

once i finished the bottom hem i tried it on and it was a little bit big, not huge but not tight, i haven't tried it on since working in the pattern, i'm only 2 inches into the pattern, i'm getting a tighter gague in the pattern though so i think the sweater is going to draw in a bit, once i try it on again i'll let you know how its fitting.

Since you have a few rows of stockinette done i would put it on scrap yarn and try it on and see how it looks and then decrease if you need to

okay so i followed my own advice and put my inprogress venezia on scrap yarn to see how it fits....... it does not fit at all, its way too big. If it were a t shirt or something it would be fine, but i want this to have about 1 inch of ease, not 6. I dont know how this happenned, i did my gague swatch, i multiplied my stitches per inch times stitches cast on and picked the correct size. But somehow my venezia is too big. I cannot even bear the thought of ripping it out, i've thought about just decreasing but i dont want it to flare out at the bottom, i dont know what to do. This may have to go to the bottom of the wip's

Superstitch,

That is awful.  There has to be some way to fix it.  Maybe someone here can give some suggestions.  If not, just rip and start over.  Don't give up.  I have ripped so many things that were almost done.  It's better to just do it and move on.  Keep on knitting Venezia!

I decided to decrease around while still on the bottom band.  We'll see how that works out.

take it from someone who just ripped out 10 inches worth - it is worth it. try to think of what you've done so far as a really elaborate and thorough swatch!

i am very very happy i started over.
