Interlocking Balloons question
I am making Interlocking Balloons, and I splurged and bought the Maine Merino suggested, which is beautiful... but I'm wondering what experience people have had with gauge. The patterns gives the gauge in the pattern, which makes it kind of hard to check gauge beforehand (although I guess you'd get some practice doing that...). When I started knitting, my scarf seemed much larger than the gauge suggested, even though I've gone down TWO needle sizes, which I ordinarily have to do to make gauge on anything. My scarf looks to be almost a foot wide! But then again, the width of the scarf varies over the pattern, so where exactly is it supposed to be 9 inches wide?
Any thoughts from those with experience with this pattern greatly appreciated!!
