I followed the pattern exactly as written, and didn't run into any problems whatsoever. I made the 9-12 month size because I was trying to use up as much of the yarn I had as possible. I still have some left over, so I'll have to see what I should do with that. I used US 8s for most of the knitting, 6s for the ribbing, and 10s for binding off. I used a tubular cast off for the ribbing and it took forever, but was (I think) worth it. It has structure, but is stretchy, and it definitely looks tidy.
I used Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride for the first time. It's definitely a rustic yarn, but I liked working with it a lot. Chicago babies can definitely use serious woolen garments, but I'm not sure who this will be for yet. I actually finished knitting, seaming, and blocking this by August 2nd, but it took me this long to sew on the snap and button. I hate sewing things on.
