Last night I knit my gauge swatch and came out 4 stitches to 1". EZ had 5 stitches to 1", so I have calculated the number of stitches I need to make a sweater just for me. EZ recommends that to change the size, increase or decrease the number of stitches between the pattern. I am going to have to add just a few to make it work for me -- about eight total or two per pattern (four on the front and four on the back). Easy peasy, right? I hope so!
Had to pick up the needles for the full sweater; I only had a 16" #4, so that wouldn't work, obviously, for the sweater, since it is knit in the round.
Tonight: I cast on! Wish me luck in counting 220 stitches!
