Thira Summer Top I got this pattern from http://www.knitty.com/Esummer08/PATTthira.html.
The designer said this was a very stretchy yarn and would need to knit it in smaller size, because of the stretchiness. I made the small size for my Granddaughter who is a size 34. I have never knitted with this type of yarn before, so went by what was stated in the pattern., and by what she said. Well the top turned out to fit my 3 yr. old Great Granddaughter. Please explain how to knit with this elastic type yarn and have it fit. I now want to make another one in the correct size. If nothing else they will have a matching Mother, Daughter top. Please help. I need to have it done by Feb. 5th. Thanks so much for any help or suggestions you can give me.
