Hi all,
I go some yarn at the dollar store near my house.  It's Cartwheel from Moda Dea, so I decided to work an this free pattern from their website.  http://www.modadea.com/patterns/LM0173.htm
I checked the gauge and it seemed to be correct.  However, I'm not sure if it will turn out OK because I chose to make in size medium according to the finished dimensions given.  Unfortunately, it looks way to big.  Could it be that the yarn I got has not an even spinning?  some parts are really thin and some are thicker.  Has anybody tried to work on this pattern?  Any suggestions?  I'm afraid that if I do the small version, it would be way to small for me to wear it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

The pictures sort of look like the yarn is a bit unevenly wound but not a ton.
However the whole pullover is a bit square itself so I assume your body helps it hang properly?
I dunno. I'm not much help but just thought I'd offer that suggestion.
