Ginny - Since the chart is larger it might be OK to use as is. maybe you could just put them sticky notes under the row you are knitting to keep on track.

Well done for finishing your sweater.

I have done my swatch with 6mm needles which I think is 11's, and get 12.5 stitches to 4 inches. I can live with that. my row gauge is completely off, at 21 rows per 4 inches not quite sure how the designer gets 16 rows with a yarn that is supposedly a little bit less bulky than the 109.

How would be the best way to wash and block this yarn. Hot or cold water. Artlady I am sorry to say I do not have any fiber wash, so would normal liquid soap do or should I use Shampoo. I have heard some people use shampoo with good result.
