Can I decrease the size of my sweater by 10% w/o redoing it?
My sweater is a bit too big....wearable, but would look much better if it were smaller. I didn't block it; would blocking help make it smaller? It has lots of cables and stuff on it, so I'm wondering if the cables will become obscure when the sweater shrinks.
I don't think there is anything you can do to make it smaller once it's done. If it were cotton it might shrink a bit, but wool and acrylic probably won't change. I doubt blocking will do anything either.
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
