I started knitting Elbac from Knitty Winter 06 last week, and it is just not working. It's on size 7s, like the pattern calls for, with Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK. It's so narrow and it looks nothing like the picture. I am very disappointed, because I am liking the cables, though I am not liking the constant p1,k1 in the pattern. I tried it on 8s and it still doesn't look right. :(
It's about the width of my hand, so maybe 3-3.5"? It looks so wide in the Knitty pictures, and despite the wonders of blocking, mine doesn't look quite the same.
