I worked on this some while I was traveling and got far enough that I can start on the big pattern. I have a few rows done. I revised it a bit. I'll put the new pattern in here. It's been fun to do. This is 1/4 of the pattern, so it gets repeated back and forth 4 times on each row.
And here's a picture of what I have so far of the body. This shows the center back as that looks better than the center front, which has a steek and will be cut later.
