I finished, and it is beautiful. It was a Alitalia snug for the 18" inset, but I just stitched the correct size. Easy fix.

It seems the needle sizes are off. A 12mm needle is size 17. There is a reference to size 17 being 12.75mm, making the gauge size different than the working size.

Hi Vicki,
first thank you for buying the pattern.

I've been investigating the needle size. I'm just knitting up another project with my size 17 circular needles and the packet says 12mm. I then looked at the straight needles I have that are size 17 and they say 12.75mm! So then I looked on-line and found conversion charts ranging from US17 = 12mm, 12.5mm and 11mm ... aaagh!!! The majority seem to say 12mm, so I will change my pattern to reflect.

My suggestion would be to knit up a tension square and see how it works for you on the needles that you have.

Hope that helps.
Have fun with the pattern
