Really struggling with the tension. I went up a needle size and I'm currently knitting a 50" chest to fit a 45" chest and it still looks small. Probably should have gone up another needle size again.
The purchase was seamless and I REALLY enjoy the option now for an e-pattern. Thank you! So many OLDER yarn retailers still ask for a check and send hard copies . . . Ways to improve the process: Have the designer add MORE 'project notes', like "top down", "bottom up", "seamless", "seamed", "knit in round", "knit flat" . . . imagine MY surprise when I thought I was buying a top down pattern with some seaming, only to get a bottom up knit flat (all seaming).
