Notes

off-label Duchess -- pattern calls for lighter yarn and sizes only up to 4yo, so some substantial modding is going on.

my swatch is 7 sts/2 inches -- casting on 129 in the round for body. (not working flat either)

Finished body and 1 sleeve! Knit sleeve in the round also.

Worked hood from Judy’s Magic Cast-on (to avoid seaming the back of the hood).

Set in sleeves and attached hood (BACKWARDS first, then frontwards).
