Aug 29th 2010 - Yarn held double. Cast on 38 sts instead of the 34, to compensate for gauge and size.
Sept 1st 2010 - Frogged. I don’t think I have enough yarn to hold it double. I’m casting on again, trying for a size a tiny bit bigger.
End of Sept, 2010 - Finished. I threw it in the wash on a normal cycle, to see if it would hold up. And it did! It also fulled slightly, but I can’t see that the size changed much. It is beyond soft, and it evened out so well. Major success. And - it’s adorable!
Cast on higher number of stitches to compensate for the small size, and the smaller yarn. Increased every round as normal, worked out well. Instead of seaming the underarm, I picked up 4 stitches from the body as I started the sleeves, and then decreased 2tog on either side of the “side seam” twice. It essentially creates a little gusset, and eliminates the need to seam.
