Doh!

I too, like KnitYoga, am confusabled. I bought some Lamb's Pride and knitted the whole of the Clutch You'll Never Give up from Leigh Radford's One Skein, only to run out of yarn before the end! I checked my gauge and it was right and all the details of the yarn were right, so how did this happen???

Luckily, because it is knitting in the round I didn't mind frogging the whole thing as it was relaxing knitting in the first place. Now I am going to re-knit and take out a few of the straight rows, but really, I don't know how it ended up so big.

I'm off to look at the One Skein KAL to see if anyone there can shed any light...

Cant help sorry, but hope you get it sorted. Let us know how you get on because I've been looking at this for a present for someone.

I've made this a couple of times, but I never actually ran out of yarn...guage isn't too important in felting, but maybe your was off enough to affect how much yarn?

I did decide NOT to use the long-tail cast-on to help conserve yarn...maybe that would help.

Try here for gusset help:

Thats how you do gussets! That is how you do gussets! Oh no! I really didn't get that from the book and have done something completely different! Of course, now I see this article it makes perfect sense!

I'm sure that whatever you did will turn out just fine...have you felted it yet?
