I love this design!  The pattern is quite difficult to read and there's a big jump between sizes for some reason.  I'm using slightly smaller yarn to accomodate this as I'm in the gap.  This should solve the problem easily.  There seems to be a mistake in the sleeves.  Surely there should be more stitiches?  I'm not quite there yet but thought someone should know.  I'll have to compare with other sizes and make adjustments.
