I see you're using the same pattern I am. I'm a bit confused by the directions in how to start a leg; did you encounter any problems? Were you able to figure it out?

Thanks!
Allison

Are you at the stage where you cast off for the leg openings?

If so, the best advice I can give is use a separate ball for each bit. It's weird at first, but it works. Don't have the pattern with me, but feel free to email me, peggysmum AT yahoo.co.uk, if this doesn't answer your question and I'll look at the pattern again tonight.

How big is the dog you're knitting for?
