Poor pattern
Beautiful in pictures. Got it in a print. Pattern is OK for body and sleeves; unusable when you get to yoke section. The rejoining is awkward for no good reason in middle of front section where there is a mesh chart - why? Other yoke instruction issues: reference to 1st marked stitch right after a round that talks about 4 markers. Which one is supposed to be the 1st? What is rep from star and references to WS supposed to mean when its worked in the round? Unable to take it to the finish line, was hoping to get clarity on the interweave website but alas it seems the original author has not replied with help to the earlier review... Review by M (Posted on 2/14/2018)
This pattern is awful. So far I have been unable to use it beyond the ribbing. I am a very experienced knitter ( over 40 years of experience) but I still have not conquered this pattern. I have the magazine and even bought the pattern. I've printed the pattern, enlarged it, cut it apart recharted it and even tried to set it up in KnitCompanion. Still every time I pick up the project I end up frustrated. This pattern should be at least twice as long to explain the body pattern. I understand it was in a magazine and space is an issue, but then don't charge me $5.50 for the same unusable pattern. I AM going to make this sweater if it takes a year, but I definitely do not recommend it to anyone at less than expert level skills. Review by Georganna (Posted on 4/28/2014)
