For me, any pattern tends to need a lot of thought and trial and error. Unfortunately, I don't have a sympathetic dog and eventually the light bulbs burn out here. Yeah, sticking with it and getting it right is really satisfying though I've had more experience with crochet patterns in this regard and I think they can be a lot harder than the knitting patterns I've used. I look forward to seeing the FO!
