View Full Version : Question about a sweater

I am a new knitter and I washed the sweater I did and I washed it in cold water and dryed it in delicate according to the directions and it literally stretched 2x it's size and I can't figure out why. I'm now afraid to wash my second project for fear it will stretch because I really like it. Does anyone know how this could happen?

It depends on the yarn fiber. Some cottons and silk will stretch, bamboo too, I think. What's yours out of?

Did the same thing happen to your swatch prior to making the sweater?
