Sweater Update

Basically, I think I'm in trouble. I'm trying to swatch the fair isle part. Or stranded part. Whatever the term, it isn't getting any easier.

The internet says use wool.
I'm using cotten.

The internet says don't pick patterns where you float the yarn more than 6 stitches.
At one point, I float 9.

The internet says don't pick patterns where there are a lot of orphan stitches.
Yeah, mine has a lot of single colors.

Also, they're telling me to knit in the round. The pattern doesn't translate that well. I think. Maybe?

I think you should be able to translate the sleeve into the round. I've heard fair isle is a lot easier that way.

You can do this. I don't think there's ever been a knitting challenge you haven't stepped up to.
