A pattern is merely a guide....
I found a pattern I liked in a magazine, but for some strange reason I wanted to use yarn instead of thread. Perhaps because I had lots of yarn in that color, but no way did I have enough thread of any color to complete it. Hmmm, will it work out? Well, so far the gauge is way off. That's okay, I am using the schematics to attempt to make it work.
So far, so good. I had to put it down a few times and walk away. I resisted the urge to throw it away several times. The good news is it is starting to take shape and actually look like a sweater; which is what it was supposed to be anyway.
I'll keep you posted as to how well it turns out.
