Well, I used a diffent yarn but similar in make up to cash soft (or so the lady at the yarn store said so–they didn’t have cashsoft in the color I wanted). It isn’t as tight as I would like, but it will work. I want to make another (cream yarn with light green beads to match my green coat) using the cash soft. Obviously it is too big for my daughter, but it fits fine on me. Unfortunately the beads are too close to the yarn color, but you can still see them.
