I frogged it and started knitting. Here is where I am, several days later.
Since I cast on a different amount of stitches, I had to play with the moose part. I will admit that it took me at least one hour of knitting and frogging to get it right and now I am moving on.
By the way, the original pattern's antlers were more reindeer than moose, but I found another chart that did moose antlers, so I am using that chart instead.
