I started this pattern and the end of the star reaches my finger tips from where the thumb gusset is. Did anyone else have a problem with the top being too long?

Dear Mrs Szura, did you get and keep the correct gauge? You should have 22sts x 30 rows in stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm. Happy knitting!

Hej jag undrar vilket garnalltsp material som bäst är lämpat till att sticka vantar, kan jag använda ett ganska mjukt acryl garn?

Cathy 20.11.2009 - 01:58:
