Howdy all. Well, I have started EZ's Seamless Sweater (again thunder and lightening erupt as Geoff barely whispers the words). I have followed her rules. I measured my favourite sweater and doubled it coming up with 44" around. Next, I did the test swatch to measure my gauge and I'm at 4.25 stitches per inch. I multiplied it out did some rounding and came up with 188 stitches. Then I cast on 90% of that 168 and started the 2X2 rib. So, here's the deal; this thing looks really small. I know it's bunched up on the needles but it just seems so tiny. Is this normal? I really don't want to get really far into this thing and find out that it's way to small. Also, she says to do 30 rounds of ribbing. I'm on row 14 and I've got about 2.5 inches. If I do what she suggests I'll end up with about 5.5 inches of ribbing. This seems like too much. Looking at my sweaters, they tend to have about 3 to 4 inches. Should I stop when I get to this length?
