Fetching Knit Along

Fetching on the small side

So I was up until here last night, and all looked well and neat:

It looked short, so I tried it on:

To me, this is a little too stretched and short. So it looks as though I'll unravel it and start again (not a problem, as this is such a quick knit, I decided not to knit a swatch since the first glove could easily fill this function). The question is though, should I add five more stitches or should I go up a needle size? What do you think? The yarn is a 4-ply cashmere.



  • I think maybe you should add 5 more stitches. I think if you went up a needle, there might be more holes. Such a shame that you have to frog them though!

  • Yeah, I think you're right. I must remember to add a couple of rounds to the length as well...

  • After the thumb I did 8 rounds instead of 4 I also added length to the thumbe because that seemed short to me too.

  • They're not even on the needles yet... I decided to finish the fish scarf before casting on again (should be soon though, since I've only got another 13 cm to go...).
