I ought to know better than to try someone's homemade sweater pattern. I followed a certain one exactly and it turned out so small it would fit an 8 year old. Obviously, when this person made it they either adjusted it as they went along or they didn't proof read their pattern. I should stick with proven patterns. I have to frog it all and am going to make a sweater from the Red Heart site. I hope frogging chenille yarn doesn't wreck it.
