Hi I love this pattern so much!!! Thank you for posting this. I think I have knitted this about 10 times and still can't seem to get it right. I am using this right sized needles and yarn but I can't get the shape in the picture. It seems to turn into more of a round shape like a baseball not a football shape. ..any suggestions would be great. Thanks
