One more thing, if anyone more experienced could tell me about the yarn (Bear or Fleishers Win-Sport, I think!) as I cannot find out what ply it is or how to choose a similar yarn as I cannot work out the ply or gauge! Thank you so much in advance!
Are you sure measuring the front of your bust and doubling will give an accurate meaurement, compared to measuring round your body? I ask because some of us (myself included) have more 'frontage' than 'backage' in this area.

Here is the link to a chart for discontined yarns (including Bear Win-Sport) that may be of help.
