OK. So I decided to do the body in the round, cast on 264 (132 +132) and eventually discovered I twisted the stitches so I had to frog.
When I pulled the thing off the needles (32" circs), it was about 68 inches around. I know my gauge is off, but yikes. It shouldn't be that off. I'm tempted to go for the next size smaller.
I'm frightened....should I be worried?
