Please interpret this (aka more possible sizing/yardage angst)
When I bought the yarn for this sweater, I swear the website said get 1/3 the total yardage for sleeves and trim if desired. For my sweater (a 10 skein sweater), 10/3=3.33. Rounding up, I bought 4 skeins of the constrasting color. 2/3 the total yardage was 6.66, so I rounded up and bought 7 skeins. That's 11 skeins total for a 10 skein sweater, which makes sense with the leftover yarn you'll have off the last skein of each color.
Now I see on the ChicKnits website that it says to buy 1/3 the total yardage plus one skein!!!!! Please tell me she means to round up, not to add 1 then round up (in my case that would mean 3.33+1=4.33, which I'll have to round to 5 for a total of 12 skeins). Then I won't have enough yarn.
Just checked: This wasn't my imagination. The .pdf pattern I downloaded in December also says 1/3 with no mention of "plus one."
Did they update the yardage requirements? I am screwed? (and this is assuming I can make the sizes I had planned, not one size bigger!)
Why would a 10 skein sweater take 12 skeins? What am I missing here?
