So, I mentioned that I would be swatching for the Knitting Olympics/Ravalympics. I did my swatch last night, and it was not what I expected.

For the Ribbi Cardi, the gauge is listed at 19 sts/4 inches in st st. That comes down to 4.74 sts/inch.

My swatch, with the density and drape that I wanted, worked out to 4.34 sts/inch. That's bigger. When I did the math, it made the (orignal) directions for the 34" bust to be closer to 41". Since I don't want an oversized garment, I've found a way to make it work with the handspun.

Now, I just have to knit the sweater. Wish me luck!
