Before you check your gauge swatch, be sure to wash and block it and let it dry. Some yarns will "bloom" when washed and have a different gauge after they've been washed. Be sure to treat it like...

Well, I would say find a 7mm needle, and being in spain, perhaps you can actually find a needle this size as there is no US equivalent to this. Barring that, the 8mm would be a better alternative...

At the bottom of the page it does indicate that the last update was on June 6th. Perhaps it was an error in the chart you have and the chart I have is the updated version?

I think you're reading the chart incorrectly. There aren't 2 YOs beside each other anywhere in that chart. Granted, when I printed it out, it's pretty darn hard to see the symbols. But row 4 is YO...

Try knitting your picked up stitches through the back legs on the first following round after picking them up. It'll twist the stitch and tighten it up so there are no gaps.

The pattern indicates that the size ball of yarn used was 226m. KP shine Sport is only 110 yds. You'd need at least 4 balls to equal what the pattern is calling for, if not a 5th as back up.

One stitch less, so cast on one stitch more than you need. It doesn't zip out like the crochet chain method, but it's not hard to remove. I actually like it better because I can control it easier.

Do you have a needle gauge? Double the yarn and start pulling it through the holes until it feels a bit snug but still pulls freely.

That's the ideal needle size to use.

I'm a turtle collector too! I've pretty much stopped adding to my collection myself because people just bring them to me now! Everywhere you look, you see a turtle. I really need a curio cabinet.
