Yeah, that makes sense. I was starting to think that, that even with the rouching (ha! I learned a new word today), I had better choose a lighter weight yarn with good drape, like a yarn with some microfiber or something.

But I mean, for the increases, should all the increases be done towards the top in just a few rows? Or increase evenly throughout? And if the latter, on each increase row, should you just space the increases evenly, or always increase at the same points on that row.
