Notes

MC (Winter Wonderland): 107.3g - 26.5g left = 80.8g used
CC (Lovedrunk): 108.0g - 30.4g left = 77.6g used

Using the written instructions with occasional peeks at the charts for clarification if need be.

I used light fingering weight so I had to go to US 4 for the body and bound off with US 5. With this combination, maybe knit more repeats for a larger size.

To get the actual pattern size, I would recommend using fingering weight yarn and a US 6 as per the pattern, binding off with US 7.
