Notes On Wonderful Wallaby

I love this pattern. It has been so much fun to knit so far. I'm using Plymouth Encore, because it is washable. Anyway I have a few (hopefully) helpful pointers. One is that it helps to start a contrasting color right after the ribbing in the beginning. For some reason, it makes it SO much easier to locate the stitches that you need to use for the pouch.
Also, when you thread through for the pouch, skip every other stitch. I'll try to get a closeup of what I mean. The count comes out perfectly if you do that.
Don't be intimidated by a crochet hook either, It's just a way to grab the yarn from under the sweater. I am really enjoying this knit!

Oh thank you for those pointers. I'm working my way through the ribbing and am just about ready to contemplate the POUCH.

Don't stop now - it helps that you are a few days ahead of me.
