another baby hoodie



To match this one, of course.

A philosophical / knitting question:  how come, when I do the exactly the same thing two different times (e.g., use the same yarn &; needles, cast on the same number of stitches, work the same number of rows in exactly the same way, etc.) I can get two different results?   This sweater is about a size larger than the other one.  It must be a gauge issue (what I'm trying to say is that I might have rushed through this second sweater in a fit of "holy hell I'm having two babies but if I make another hoodie right this very minute because then everything will be just fine").

Oh well, I suppose one of the twins is bound to be bigger; he or she will be the one who wears this sweater.

You added stripes to this one. Clearly that was the change in gauge. :-) The nice thing about babies is that they will grow into things eventually.

can stripes really change gauge?

I'm not 100% sure if stripes will always change gauge, but I knit different when I'm changing yarns that when I'm not. Just a theory.
