Pattern is difficult to follow
I saw this cardigan made up, tried it on, and I think its very attractive. I am familiar with this designer, she always provides interesting designs.
I found this pattern to be confusing, I am stuck on the armhole row, where breaks are made for the armholes as you come to them knitting down from the neck edge. I am a pretty experienced knitter, but I don't appreciate challenging sentences with multiple brackets.
The pattern does not provide any information about how to get help, and Interweave Press does not seem to provide any. Berroco contacted me, and offered help, I had to send them a copy of the pattern! and have not heard back.... all in all, right now one UFO awaiting revival.

A mistake in the lace section?
I think there is a mistake in the lace section. There are 4 rows in the lace section. The first row has a k2tbl and a yo. This makes for a open space.. Then there are 3 rows that follow that are identical to the ribbed section. These rows do not make an open space. In the photo it is obvious that there is an open space every other row. The instruction say to repeat the last 2 rows ( regular ribbing rows with no open spaces) until it is time for the armholes. Review by Debora (Posted on 9/6/2015)
simple & cute
I'm not finished yet, but so far I really like this pattern. It's straight forward and a pretty easy knit. Review by Michelle (Posted on 8/19/2014)
More photos.
You can see more photos on Pintrist ( or in the Spring 2014 issue of Interweave knits.

And I agree, the pattern looks great!

This pattern looks great, but it always amazes me that there is but one photo - which leaves us wondering what is the front like???? Review by Carol (Posted on 7/24/2014)
