How to Shrink
First, I know that I should have done a test swatch but I didn't and now I'm trying to fix things :-(
I am using a Plymouth Yarn, 85/15, cotton/silk yarn, Lyndon Hill, that called for US 4 needles. The pattern called for lace weight yarn & US 0 needles. I used US 2 needles because I am a "tight" knitter. Anyway, the item is knitting up about 50% bigger than expected!
My question ....
How much will this yarn shrink if I wash it in hot water & dry it?
