Hard to say for sure since your photos aren’t coming up, but from your description I’m guessing the problem is the word untrimmed.

When pattern routing, the blank should be trimmed with a bandsaw to the approximate shape so that you are not taking off too much material with the router. Trying to take out large chunks of material with a pattern bit will result in grabbing and tearout.
