I just machine washed and dried the second swatch I made for Sitcom Chic (CottonEase). It shrunk 4%. I was hoping it would help me get the right gauge. I was one to two stitches off with size sixes and size sevens and thought washing would split the difference and be right on. No - now I'm getting 19 stitches to 4" washed, instead of the needed 18. The row gauge is way off - I'm getting 24 stitches in 3" instead of 4". With the raglan decreases, this could actually matter, I guess. I usually don't worry about row gauge. Anyone else's experience with this sweater and gauge, washing would be appreciated.
