We’ve all been there – furiously knitting away on your current project, finally finished, casting off, weaving in ends and then… it doesn’t fit! It’s all a part of the learning process, between gauging, stretching, needle size, and yarn weight, there are a lot of opportunities to mess up! This list isn’t meant to shame anyone, we’re all in this together. Learn to laugh at your mistakes! If you’ve ever knitted a gigantic hat or mismatched socks, take heart – you’re clearly in good company. Sit back and enjoy these knitting fails!
Guage? What Is Guage?
Hats are hard. The pattern said to cast on 80 stitches… what did we do wrong?!
Just A Little Bit Off
This one is so frustrating, but it isn’t that bad. You could always just say one shrunk in the wash!
Yikes! Looks like this mistake wasn’t noticed until after a few times through the wash. How heartbreaking to have to redo all of that work!!
No! Oh that makes me so sad. Cableing is hard enough, it can be so discouraging when you have to redo everything!
