I think it might have been the crazy way I was doing my swatch. A more experienced knitter suggested I do a stockinette swatch, knit flatly, and measure 30 rows rather than rounds. I'm working on that now and it seems to be much closer to the target gauge.
I do love the yarn, though.

I'm not an experienced knitter, but I'd suggest doing this as well. Good luck!

I've got about an inch left to knit before placing the stitches on a holder.  Smiley Almost done!

I'm jealous! I haven't been giving this the attention it needs, so I'm only just getting to the ribbing part *blush*

Awesome! I have an inch or so to go before I get to the ribbing part. I've been working on finishing up Branching Out, and that's finally done. YAY!
I swatched and am using size 6s.
I'm not allowed to post pictures yet (*sulk*), but you can see what I have so far on my blog.

I just finished my tunic today.

Some notes:

  • This was a super easy, mindless knit. I zoned off knitting the Stockinette St main portion while watching countless hours of Man vs. Wild and Reign the Conqueror.
  • I substituted the S. Charles Collezione Kyoto with Rowan Calmer in Drift. In retrospect, this was not a good idea. Although Calmer has a stitch gauge very close to Kyoto, it knits up more like a worsted weight rather than a DK weight. The result is something less drapey and slightly thicker than I would have liked . In short, I don't recommend using Calmer.
  • I used US 7s for the larger needles and 6s for the ribbing.
  • I didn't knit the front split pieces simultaneously by joining a new ball of yarn; I just finished one side and then worked on the other.
  • I originally made a turning row on the very bottom with the intention of hemming up the rolled bottom, but it turns out I don't mind the rolled bottom much, so I didn't hem it after all.
  • I used 1/4" ribbon doubled instead of 3/8" ribbon.
  • No beads. I'm not a bead kind of person. Smiley

Good luck to the rest of you on your tunics! I'll be sticking around some to look for some FOs. Cheesy
