1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please please help?! on: August 25, 2008 11:34:34 AM
Hmm! All the swatches I've done so far have been at least 25 stitches across and maybe 20 rows down, to try and get a decent middle section! I think I'm going to just risk it on the 5.5, as foolish as it may be! At least then I know I'm only getting 1 extra stitch per inch.. I'm planning to line it with fleece after (to keep out the cold cornish wind!) so if it is a little big, that should help? We'll see! If nothing else, it will be an adventure!

Thanks very much for all your help! It was very very much appreciated.

I'm using exactly the same yarn as in the pattern.
I'm maybe thinking of just going for a 5.5mm needle, where I get 5 stitches to the inch, and making a smaller size?

Or is that a recipe for disaster?!

So I wanted to make Knitty's Swell (http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer06/PATTswell.html) for my sea obsessed boyfriend, who has a birthday coming up...

But I can't get the gauge right! I have swatched on every needle size I have (I'm using the yarn the pattern suggests..) from the 3.25mm suggested by the pattern, right up to a 6mm! Even after I've almost doubled my needle size, the minimum number of stitches I can get it down to is 18.

I can't really go up any more, the fabric's looking loose as it is! I really want to make this, but its driving me crazy! Is there something I'm missing? Am I just being genuinely dense? Any suggestions as to what I could do?

I would be eternally greatfull for any help! Thank you!

I am a HUGE narnia fan! I wish I could make something like this, it would probably make my life.

Great work!

This is probably the best jumper, or even just the best THING, that I have ever seen! It's totally worthy of a 'this rocks!'

If it hasn't already been asked before, what yarn did you use? I'd love to have a stab at making this.

She is such a pretty doll! I think you've done a great job.
