did you take it off the needles or use two needles to measure it? I wonder if the pattern at the bottom somehow adjusted the gauge at the hip OR that the cast on did it. huh.

good luck with whatever you decide!


The vest is turning out lovely, but would going up a needle size or two work on the measurements?


I suppose you've ripped it out already, but it has to be possible for you to measure and calculate and see where you went wrong. If you measure the hips, and they are too small, and you have blocked it, then dividing by the number of stitches in the hips at the point of measurement will give you your actual gauge. With that, you'd know what adjustments to make.


It seems like if your measurements of your knitting are accurate, if you went up to the large you'd get the right size. Gauge is a harsh master.


Yikes! That looks so pretty, beautiful color too. Yes, try the Large. Just doesn't make sense how it could be too small when all your careful gauge calculations were accurate for your measurements. I sympathize.

It's one of my fears when making a wearable. All that work & time!

Strange! I just went and did the math, and it just doesn't make sense. You're sure you didn't miscount how many stitches you cast on?
