The perils of not checking your gauge

My friend Goody came to me recently to see if she should break for the arms yet on the sweater she had been painstakingly working on. Well, clearly something was wrong even though she insisted she had done everything correctly and I mean seriously insisted.  We took it off the needles and it looked like this:

Goody had been given the wrong weight yarn- a chunky- to work an aran pattern and since she never bothered to check the gauge didn’t realise she was making a sweater the would fit 3 of her in it…. enough said. This experience has  put her off knitting for awhile . Mistakes happen but I’m glad it wasn’t me that made this one.
