I'm a beginner crochet-er who just made the ultimate mistake--I bought the wrong yarn for the pattern. Unfortunately for me, I love this yarn--it's Reynold's Rapture in natural--50% wool, 50% silk--which is listed as either a worsted or a bulky yarn depending on what website you look at.
I originally started out trying to do the "unseamly sweater" from happy hooker. I checked my gauge (J-hook), but apparently didn't do it well enough, since I was halfway up the back piece before I realized that I was making a dress, not a sweater. When I rechecked my gauge again, it was fine horizontally, but long vertically (?!?). Unfortunately, I bought the yarn on sale (it was still expensive), so there's no returning it.
Does anyone have a pattern out there for a sweater/tank that uses a bulky yarn, around 640 yards and would fit a size small? I've looked and looked and am at my wit's end--most shirts or tanks use a DK or a worsted that is lighter than this yarn, and I'm sick of making scarves, shawls and hats. Thanks!
