Sorry about the bizzare post - evidently I didn't "copy" the right thing before I pasted into the comments. I have just started making the squares and have a few questions about the main body diagram. What do the "x"s mean on the second squares in from each end on the first row of FULL mofit squares? Do they mean make both full and 1/2 motifs - full for the back piece and 1/2 for the front neckline? Also, what do the dotted lines on the 2 topmost squares mean? I think this is going to be an adventure......

Makes: 8 servings, 1 cups each Active Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 4 to 8 hours (not including soaking chickpeas overnight)

I have the larger part made but can not figure out how the sleeves will fit in? Can you email me how that works? Thank you. Beverly Murray n2odat@comcast.net

I would like to see the front, back, and sleeves laid out so I can have an idea how it is supposed to go together. I would love to make it, but I have to see the parts before I can make a new project.

I have attempted the sleeve fill 3 times now - I have absolutely no idea what they're trying to accomplish and/or how to do it - has anyone mastered this? any help would be appreciated - I have a deadline that's fast approaching!! nancyn@live.com

Help wanted in assembling squares. I do not understand how the sleeves fit in!

I have made this pattern bigger by adding two rows or Treble crochet to each side of each piece (front and back) The final waist measures 41". I also added one square column to each sleeve, to fit the adjustment on the body of the sweater. I would have added a full square to each side but didn't need that much. It was a little bit of trial and error but the end product looks very nice, and I have gotten many compliments! Hope this helps

Can you please explain, in detail, how you did the sleeve fill in? TIA

I have made this sweater for myself, and now making it as a gift. I cannot for the life of me figure out the proper way to do the sleeve fill-in. Please help!! e-mail me if necessary tkosoccermom@hotmail.com. Thank You

wonderful

I love this jacket but I am having trouble getting the sleeves in. Did anyone else have trouble or am I the only one. PLEASE let me know. Thanks Suggestions are welcome

just started to do this one see how i go looks good though jan w

What about making it with thicker yarn and bigger hook to get a bigger size? It will require some calculations but that could work.

Im another lady who would like this pattern in a plus size, seems they never answer our comments, very angry

I too would love a plus size pattern for this beautiful sweater. A 2x size.

I would also like to have this pattern in plus size. If any one has one please email it to me at vwilkerson211@yahoo.com. Thanks

Take your measurements and make an outline on graph paper and make a sample square to determine your gauge. Following the diagrame at the bottom of the pattern, increase or decrease the square's placement to fit your measurements. I hope this helps.

Did anybody get the pattern for larger sizes?? If so I'd really like to get it also. I love this sweater and would love to make it!!! If someone has it for a larger size would you please email it to me at pate0613@gmail.com? Thank you!

I don't like granny squares normally, too ugly , but this is the first pattern using them that I actually like!

Do they ever answer the requests on here? I also would like to have the pattern for the larger sizes of this sweater? And if there is a pattern for this, can somone direct me to it? THANK YOU, KATHY

I too would love to have instructions to enlarge this jacket. I would like one for sizes, XL, XX, XXX.

Can you give me the information on making this pattern fit 50 - 52" busted person please, I am not this small either? Any ideas on making this change in this pattern? Please email me: llinda.brown@att.net. Thank you for your help. ljb

Caron Yarn sent us the diagram, which you can now seen at the bottom of the pattern. Apologies for the omission!

The diagram is missing. How can I get a copy of the diagram? Is is possible to have it emailed to me. I have them motifs all done and would like to put them together. Thank you.

I too am looking for the diagram. I have made all my granny squares and it would be nice to see a diagram so I know what I am doing, very frustrating.

Why only one size? I like the jacket but I certainly can't wear one that small!

The diagram is missing!
