I wish I could say that I am a dedicated swatcher (I'm trying). I can never figure out if I am doing it right. Is it the 4'' that I should worry about more or is it the number of stitches I should count. Well hopefully this one is right, because I cast on and am a bit into the project already. This tank top is knit in Rowan 4-ply cotton on number 3 needles. I don't usually go for the color that the pattern is made in, but the yarn store that I shop at has a limited selection of colors and I was impatient and didn't want to wait to purchase it on-line. So I ended up getting lot # 131, which is a lovely shade of green. Any advice on the swatching is much appreciated! Happy Knitting.
