VIDEO, PHOTOGRAPH AND PATTERN DISAGREEI made the small pumpkin 3 times, in accordance with the instructions given by the teacher on the video, and it never came out with the stitches going straight up and down, as his were. On the other hand, the PHOTOGRAPH shows the stitches going AROUND the little pumpkin a bit. If the stitches are SUPPOSED to circle around the pumpkin, as in the example picture on the left, then the teacher was doing it wrong. If they AREN'T supposed to circle around the pumpkin, then I was doing it wrong by listening to his words and what he was saying, which didn't match what he was doing.
He appeared to be saying instructions that were different than what he was doing with his hands. In several parts of the video, his hands were obstructing the view. As a result, I cannot tell if he followed the pattern or not, as the pattern is written in a confused manner. After making this item 3 times, I have lost patience with this pattern and the video that doesn't match. Who knows what it is supposed to look like?
