Not so easy pullover

Project info
Easy Pullover for Babies, Toddlers and Kids by Purl Soho
4 years old
Needles & yarn
US 4 - 3.5 mm
Koigu Premium Merino (KPM)
70 yards in stash

Starting this project just before baby 2 is due. Size 4 will be perfect for next year, so let’s hope I get it done by then.

I’m actually having a bit of trouble with this pattern. When I came to bind off the Left Sleeve portion I realised I was short 1 st. I think I cast on incorrectly despite counting it numerous times.

I decided to push on anyway but now I’ve just BO the Right Sleeve and joined the two sides to make the front. The head opening looks too small which leads me to think I needed to make the sleeves wider. when measuring the length of the sleeves I took the measurement from the stockinette st area which was longer than the seed st part. I’m now thinking I should have taken the measurement from the seed st part which would make the sleeves baggier but also the neck opening bigger.
