- In response to Gillaine's 1 star review
The 4 star review I'm giving this pattern is based on this pattern's rating on Ravelry, as of Nov 16, 2014.
There are errata for this pattern available:
The last 4 sts of the Dec Row should be worked as p2, k2 instead of k2, p2.
Body; Shape Waist:
The Dec Rnd should read as follows:
* K1, k2tog, knit to 3 sts before next m, ssk, k1; rep from *—4 sts dec'd.
I am not aware of any other errata, and this is the first I've heard of knitters having trouble with the pattern.
I do not understand what Gillaine means by " Just look at the cable pattern: how could you knit the 2 sts on the even row of the cable chart?" If she could contact me, I'd be happy to explain how it works and makes sense.
if you're considering this pattern, please read through the completed pattern notes on Ravelry. Many knitters have enjoyed this, and thought it was well written. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/warmth-top.
Please contact me (the author) with problems if they occur and I will do my best to help out: knitt AT kristentendyke DOT com.
I'm sorry the Interweave website gave difficulty in downloading the pattern. I've contacted someone at interweave to investigate into this problem to prevent it from happening in the future.

- Bad ordering expierence and subsequently the worst pattern
On two attempts I tried to order this pattern on line (even with help from your customer service rep) - the pattern would not download - problem was with the pattern's author. Nothing happened. Tried to cancel order - only resolution eventually was to have Paypal intervene.
I've ordered book with pattern - project on needles and at least rip outs or rip backs I have a good start. I am an experienced knitter and usually have no problems with patterns -- this patterns is very poorly written with loads of mistakes that I've been able to figure out only due to years of experience. Just look at the cable pattern: how could you knit the 2 sts on the even row of the cable chart?
The pattern text is very vague with "next row" verbage. I can't imagine this was test knitted by a knitter not originally involved with the creating of this pattern. If I didn't have the yarn purchased I would not continue with this pattern.
And to be honest I am less and less enchanted with Interweave Knits.
