Why is my cardigan so scrunchy when IK’s looks so smooth and lovely.
Smoothalicious…. (well, it is when you open the pic link)
Can you see the bumps?? This is the cardigans preferred resting position. I’m thinking the memory or spring of the alpaca has something to answer for in regards to the michelin man type bulges. And that tape measure says 8 inches at rest….
But wait, when i stretch it out to make it flat (but not tense) i’m given this…
How its meant to look??
Much better. I get all the length back – so its about 16 inches instead of 8.
I also would like to have a little gripe about the jump of 6 inches between the sizing of 41inch bust and 47inch. I am 42-43, when i make the 41 its gonna be too small, when i make the 47 too big.
I’m currently doing the 47, but i’m pretty sure i will have to take in the side seams when i’ve made it to make it fit nicely…. big sigh… But i am getting nice complements when people see it – the lace is really nice….
