More Capecho Mods

What I've gleaned from the Craftster forum:

  • Knit at least one size smaller
  • Knit on a smaller needle, perhaps even finer yarn
  • Eliminate one (#7, though I think eliminating #4 might work) to four (#1, 9, 7, 8) pentagons
  • The pentagons are easier than you think
  • Getting gauge is no help (Vogue Knitting, who do you think you are publishing a pattern like this?!?)
  • The pentagons stretch more once they're together

    Sooo, the Sylvan Spirit is DK. If I did it on US5s, it might just work.
