well I just finished mine. It was a little confusing with the sleeves, once I figured it out I was able to make the sweater.

I felt the pattern was not even. the shoulders were uneven at the neck and the hood was attached to the front neckline. I did not care for the pattern.

I got through the directions ok, but next time I think I will add ribbing at the wrists, the sleeves seem a little short.

I was able t figure out the sleeve confusion, but I am concerned that the sleeve will be too short. Is this suppose to be a shot sleeved sweater?

It looks like this sweater has caused some confusion. First, one small thing that might be adding to the confusion--in the Notes on the instructions, it does mention that the chain 2 for the turning chain doesn't count as an hdc, so that could be causing some of the confusion. br br As for the construction of the garment, here's a brief walkthrough of how it's constructed. You start at the bottom edge of the back of the cardigan, then add the sleeves to the left and right of the back, then work the sleeves for a while, then you make one front, ending at the bottom edge of that front piece. When you complete that front, you end the yarn, attach to the unfinished stitches on the other half of the sweater and make the second front. Then you add the hood and the contrasting trim edging. br br Where the instructions say "Shape Sleeves", you work the 13 (15-17) chain stitches in the first row to add one sleeve and hdc in the 3rd chain from the hook and the next 10 (12-14) chains, then in the hdcs across the back. Then, to start the next row, you do the same--working those chain stitches, then working back in hdc as before. Since you don't count the chain 2s as hdcs, you're making 11 (13-15) hdcs on each sleeve and working the 36 (38-43) hdcs across the back--that's 22 36 = 58 for the smallest, 26 38 = 64 for the medium, and 30 43 = 73 for the largest. Remember, you aren't counting the chain 2 turning chains in the stitch count. As you work the sleeves, your piece will look like a T. When you work the fronts, they're worked as two separate pieces, though the neck opening will look more like a slit, not a round opening. br br For lack of a better description of the sweater's shape when the back, sleeves, and fronts are all complete, it will look a bit like a plus sign, with the north-pointing piece split vertically. The sleeves will be the two side pieces and the back will be the south-pointing piece.br br When you get to the finishing step, you fold the sweater in half so the sleeves are folded along what would be the shoulders. The bottom edges of the front and back will be even, and you'll have that t-shape again. You'll sew the sleeve seam, turn at the armpit, and sew down the side seam. Do the same on the other sleeve and side seam.br br Hope this helps!

I have been raking my brains trying to figure out how to put all this together the pattern says its worked in one piece i have done everything except the hood for it because it says to sew up the side seams and arms i cant figure out for the life of me how to put this thing together your directions are not clear on how this is put together Need Help!!

I am working this sweater too and I am at the same place...are we supposed to add 13 chain on each side for sleeves and then work the pattern? If I add the 13 chain afetr working the first sleeve and then work across the back then the pattern and count is off.

I tried to do this sweater but the section on the sleeves is unclear are these sleeves suppose to continue on from the back piece? I wasnt sure if I was suppose to end when i finished the back and start from scratch on the sleeves? or are the sleeves suppose to continue on from the back? I'm a bit confused what the 58 is? I am doing the smallest sweater but im not sure what the 58 is suppose to be. Shape sleeves Next 2 rows Ch 13 (15-17). 1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook. 1 hdc in next 10 (12-14) ch. 1 hdc in each hdc of row. Turn. 58 (64-73) hdc at end of 2nd row. Work 12 (12-14) rows even.
