yarn I wound so patiently? Eventually I transformed this into another piece from AUSTENtatious Crochet: the Becoming Jane Sweater.
last time I used this book. Perhaps it was my fault. I chose to use a yarn different from that called for. But I was really careful about it. I figured that a yarn with the same ratio of length to weight should produce the same gauge. I calculated ratios and considered colors for many yarns, and finally chose CoBaSi, a blend of cotton, bamboo, silk, and elastic nylon in a range of vibrant colors. I knew I'd need a hook larger than the recommended E, so I tried F. And G. Once I got to N, the stitches were large enough to achieve the specified gauge, but they were loose and undefined, and didn't look right at all. So I settled on J, and crocheted by the measurements.
