Adorable so far!

I am finding the pattern writing a little frustrating. There has to be a better way than having the pattern spread out over three pages at one time. The charts, instructions and striping pattern on different pages. I found the instructions for the steek stitches a little bare. I had to restart the sleeves a few times because of missing the “keep the first and last stitch in MC” instruction. I wasn’t sure if that instruction held for the body or in the upper body charts, but I don’t think so. I really just winged the colorwork for the last chart, not worrying about the specific size lines. I think the beginning of the round should be in the middle of the steek stitches, and not at one side of it.

I decided to go in the round despite using superwash yarn. The WoTA is pretty toothsome, so will just do a sewn reinforcement just in case. Oh, and I added two extra steek stitches for peace of mind.
