I am at the point of shaping the neck but would really like to see a diagram of what the separate pieces are supposed to look like. Is there one for this written pattern?

Chippy

. Can someone explain this step to me? "Cont even until armhole measures 12 rows less than Back to shoulder,"

This is my first sweater and if someone could please explain how to work the even rows between the increase row on the sleeves any tips or advice is welcome

I basted the hood to the sweater before I attached it to make sure it fits, but the instructions say to fold it in half and it's too small, has anyone else had this problem? I'm thinking of adding on more rows so the centre of the hood can be sewn together.

Would be nice to have a video to show how to do some of stitches like..sc2tog over first 2 sts.

This pattern leaves a lot of detail out. As a 40+ year crocheter, I had difficulty following the directions. 1. The amount of yarn stated as needed to incorrect. I made this sweater to fit a misses size 12-14 and ended up using 10 skeins as opposed to the 4 stated in the pattern. 2. The first rows are questionable as the increase explained starts to spiral, but ripped it all out and started again. 3. There are no directions on how to attached the pieces together, therefore I used a large eyed needle and blanket stitched together. These are just a few issues of all whole list. When my project was complete, I was pleased with it but thank goodness I have experience to fall back on.

I made the casual chunky sweatshirt and I love it, but I can't figure out how to put the hood on. It's the varigated pink one shown. Any ideas? I love the sweatshirt so far.
