My sleeve / swatch had 24½ stitches to 4" before washing and pinning, but 22 stitches to 4" after washing. That is spot on gauge! Very exiting. The Fanakofte will be my test run before I start the big and complicated Peer Gynt Anniversary Sweater, which has a star all-over motif, and a nisse riding on a moose-like animal right smack in the middle of the star pattern. Oh my, it looks like the colourwork is winning over the lace - but not for long, my WIP's do want to be finished. I am just multitasking.
Have a nice day
