I'm a beginner knitter (about 2 months..) and i've knitte quite a few things already
I've knitted various scarves, and I decided I need a more difficult project to challenge myself, and started
(I used the pattern in this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=67267.0
(pic also from the link to pattern)
The problem was that they were WAAY TOO BIG!! not just a little loose, when I knitted exactly the way the
pattern told me, the finger part of the mitten was twice the length of my fingers!!
I even used the child
size numbers just in case! and when i took out the rows to fit the length of my fingers, there was still too
much room in the mitten, that it fell off everytime I'd put it on and stand with my arm down
. I decided
that maybe mittens were too much of a challenge, and tried to knitt these cable wristwarmers (the pattern
seemed easy enough)
(this pic also from link)
but again, it ended up being too big... and I used one size smaller needles than the pattern offerred!
I'm completely lost as to what is the problem!!? It can't possibly be that I have impossibly tiny hands (trust
me on this one
) , or is it that I'm knitting WAY too loose??
Any kind of help would be GREATLY appreciated!! thanks!
