Update Review by Jayme

Got it! Just some eyes-crossed, pattern misreading on my part. Hooray!

Hmmmm... Review by Jayme

I'm loving this project and it's working up quickly but I'm stuck on round 2 of the body (for 36-3/4" size). It is NOT working out right! I run out of V-sts before the end although I have the correct amount on the first row. Anybody else have this problem or know what I may be missing?
Rating is based on this little snafu + the possibility that I may actually be able to solve the problem & finish the project! :)
