So because my wonderful swap partner sent me 3 skeins of berroco peruvia towards my tilted duster i've been lusting after, i'm going to order the rest of the yarn and get started.
problem is, i measure 38" and the sizes they offer are 32 (36, 40.5, 44, 48)
maybe i'm just a bit off, but 2.5" seems like a big increase between me and the next size up.
do i try using smaller needles to get a tighter gauge, and cast-on for the 40.5"?
or, do i use the size needles they suggest, cast on for the 36 and just block it a little bigger?
i'm newer to this sweater adjusting thing, and i don't want to end up with a knitted tent. but i want to be able to close the buttons while i'm wearing it. all the prior sweater patterns i've knit were a lot closer in size, so i felt comfortable choosing one...this time? just seems like i'm inbetween....
thanks for your help!!!
