This pattern has a gauge of 7 stitches and 11 rows pr. 10 cm in the loop pattern on a circular needle 6 mm after wash.
In general the knitting gauge can change after washing, so it is important to wash the gauge and measure it afterwards. This sweater will expand after wash, so therefore the sweater can feel a bit short and tight before you wash it.
It is important to remember that Mayflower Super Kid SIlk won’t tolerate normal machine wash or tumble drying. Instead, hand wash with lukewarm water. Wash with wool soap or normal hair shampoo.
