That's not true, on either count. I did swatch, I just didn't measure right. I will never understand how 4.5 inches equaled 4 to me... so strange.

Also, the sweater wouldn't have been ruined if my boyfriend had wanted it... see?


Fortunately, I was only beginning the armholes when i realized it was freakin massive. I'm 5 feet tall and [was] petite [before the baby, and will be again soon], my  man is 6 feet tall and broad shouldered (but mega thin... he fits into my jeans better than I do...)

Oh, in case you're wondering the pattern is Wicked from Zephyr Style. I love the pattern but... sigh... it had to be frogged.
