Crocheting Tips & Tricks from K4TT

I can't begin to count the number of times I have finished a second doll arm or foot, only to find it is slightly smaller than the first.

It's not hard at all to do! Your hand will naturally begin to fatigue as you work and thus, pull stitches tighter; creating a 'smaller' finished item.

One simple and effective way to making pairs more identical, is to start both at the same time. Working a few rows on one and then on the other until both are completed.
You can compare sizes often and easily maintain accurate gauge.

Wow thanks for the good tip, that happens to me a lot, I have some ami's that have one foot bigger than the other.
I just made 2 monkeys from the same pattern and the boy monkey's head is bigger than the girls, not that its a big deal, I was rather puzzled since I used the same hook!!!!
