I reached the required stitch number a couple of days ago but my FC looked a little small. (Not that it's actually all that easy to tell when it's all bunched up on the needle.)
Anyhow, the thing is as the yarn came from my stash (out of the box of granny gave me) I don't know what the yarn is and I had no idea how much (if any) it was going to grow by on blocking. The only answer was to knit and block a test swatch - and here is the result. It didn't grow at all!! Well, hardly at all. So, more repeats it is then.
195 stitches and counting ..... How big, is big enough?
