Hello fellow bangers! I’m eeeasing my way into this (didn’t cast on my swatch until Feb 6), so I’m still in the planning stages. Possibly I am also quietly tapping rather than banging
I wasn’t even sure I was going to join in this year until somebody (can’t find the post anymore!) suggested the wild idea of trying gauge-shifty Mohonk to get a lighter weight sweater and I was . I’m aiming for a Liberty Tree in Mohonk (Cypress colorway). The yarn, of course, is sheepy and delicious.
So I’ve been swatching and I’ve got a Quandary:
My latest swatch is on size 7s, and I’m coming in pretty far under gauge: 20 sts = 3.625" / 28 rws = 3.5". But I like the fabric I’m getting on the 7s. I’ve got Interchange, and I’m cool with plugging the Liberty Tree chart into that worksheet, but here’s my question:
I really like the vertical proportions of the Liberty Tree cables on the sample. My denser row gauge will result in the cables ending 3/4" higher (and being more squat in general), and I’m not sure I’ll be happy with that.
If I were to lengthen the Liberty Tree chart itself , what’s the most graceful way to do so? Or is there some other clever solution?
