Is this not the cutest sloth toy you’ve ever seen? I saw it in internet ads for weeks. I suppose I must have clicked through or at least slowed down my scroll, because they kept showing it to me until one day it went on a serious sale. I bought the kit.

Now I’m knitting it up. However, this is the first 28 rows of the body. At this point, I should knit the neck.

Obviously, this is not correct. The body is not the right shape.

I have pulled it out and redone it with different needles. Not surprisingly, this did not solve the problem.

Now what? It’s not that complicated. I can just knit the right shape and carry on.

However, it so often turns out that what seems like an error in the pattern is my error instead. I’m not sure what I should do.
