Need some expert guidace please
Hi, as I have previously mentioned, I am having some problems getting the gauge for a guayavera shirt featured in this summer's Knit.1 issue. I have the recommended yarn but I think there is a problem with the pattern. I had this expert knitter at my lys check my gauge and I'm coming up with 20 stitches to 4" on a no.9 needles instead of 16 st. to 4" on a #7 needles as recommended. This is also creating a very loose knit, very see-through with too many holes. Someone here recommended I should change the pattern so I am willing to do this but I am going to need some expertly advise. I think I can get the fabric to measure up by adding about 8 stitches, my problem is when I get to the sleeves. It would be like making a medium shirt into a large without having the isntructions to the large. Or hould I just wait for the errata, if there is ever any? I was hoping to have this shirt done by xmas. Is this possible? TIA!
