I am using handpaintedyarns merino laceweight wool for my icarus on no.2 US needles. Last night I just started my 3 repeat of the first chart and I am concerned. It looks a bit small. There is really no length to it yet, maybe about 8 inches when stretched, but it is getting wider. When does the real length come in? Everyone elses looks longer than mine, could I be using to small of needles? Would I probably have to add another repeat of the chart ( I have a ton of wool to do it with)?
