It's a crying shame...


that I did not double check my gauge sooner...












What you don't see in the photo is that I have about 14 inches of the body of a Seamless Hybrid completed, and it's the wrong size. This is what being a half stitch off on your gauge gets you! It's supposed to be a 46 and it's closer to 50. Oh well, this gives me the opportunity to get that hem right. It really was too bulky...rrripppp!

  • When you rip and re-do the hem, are you planning to do the hem with a lighter weight yarn and/or a small needle?
    I am re-doing the hem on an EZ nordic yoke sweater and am weighing my options.

  • I'm using the same yarn in a contrasting color, and will cast on 90% of the body stitches for the hem and then will increase for the body. The first go-round I cast on 100% of the body stitches and used a smaller needle until I turned the hem, and I didn't like the results.

  • Sorry about the ripping - it is a crying shame....The colors are nice though. Lydia
