You're using a #3 weight yarn, a light worsted weight, doubled (the equivalent of about 16sts/4") and the pattern calls for a #4 weight or aran (about 18sts/4"). Do you like the knit fabric that you're getting or is it too stiff or tight? I don't think I'd make it any tighter on smaller needles.That may be what's taking some of the puffiness out of the pattern. Have you tried a swatch on larger needles?
