Help! First sweater to big. Can you shrink cotton?
Hi,
A friend of mine, whom I taught to knit, just finished her first sweater. Everything is fine except it is way to big for her. I feel terrible because I helped her with measurements and all. I still don't know how it ended up so big! :thinking:
The yarn she used was 100% cotton. Is there anyway to shrink the sweater? She has already thrown it in the dryer and it didn't work. She's talking about ripping it out and she's wondering if she'll ever knit again!

Any ideas?
Thanks!!!
