This pattern leaves out a lot of crucial information. First, it says to go to Round 6 for the smaller size (which I'm making) or Round 7 for the larger size. You're also supposed to join as you go, but she only includes joining instructions for around 7, not Round 6, so I had to adapt that myself. Then it's ambiguous whether you join into strips, and then connect the strips another way, or whether you're supposed to join into one large piece. I assumed the later, but there are no instructions for joining more than two corners together. Because of that, I again had to make it up myself, and now my corners don't look anything like the ones in the photo. Rather than tear it apart and try again, I'm just going to keep going with the ugly corners to be consistent. (Someone else who is struggling with the pattern contacted the creator and was told to join-as-you-go for the whole thing, but apparently didn't offer any further instruction.)
I'm still working on one side, so I'm not even sure how the rest of the pattern is, but based on how much I've already had to figure out and make up on my own, I'm not impressed. I'm hoping the shirt still turns out ok otherwise.
