omg i'm an idiot

so not only do i have to redo the sweater i have to redo the charts i've just drawn out. see i was making a smaller size to make up for the difference in my gauge...and i did the charts in a smaller size too...shoot me. please...these charts are so hard to draw out. does anyone have any suggestions? see my row gauge is 24rows/4inches stitch gauge is perfect...thoughts?

ok so i redid the sleeve chart again (the raglan decreases bit) so i think it will be ok. i just did math for the increases...i think i can rip and re cast would think i would be ok with math (physics major ya know) but it gives me such a headache! i just wanna knit!

when you say charts, what do you mean? Are you graphing out the sweater on paper like Koko did?

Hi duchessofgravity,

you are now working on the size 33 1/2 and with the yarn which has 24 row gage? if so, this is exactly the same to me. Don't worry. I can show you how to magage to knit in different gauge. What math did you do? I can tell you my trace method, if you are interested in.

jackie, yes i'm using kioko's method its a lifesaver but a headache!!!

koko, i am actually making the size 41 now i was going to make 37 but it would just be too small i think.

i've drawn the actual pattern gauge to graph paper and traced the raglan shaping onto my gauge paper. i'm just gonna do math to get the sleeve increases to work out. what i'm worried about now is that some of the raglan decreases are going to be on the purl side...and how do you compensate for the circle increases. where tdo they happen. do you do some from the back?

see this is why i don't try to alter patterns i either do one thats exact or make up my own...sigh
