I like it it's beautiful I will make it. Thanks

I have to agree with the sizing comments - if you actually are crocheting to "Gauge" the top is only going to be about 8-10 inches from the arm hole to the waist band. That wouldn't make it as long as the top in the photo appears. It would be easy enough to adjust the back by adding more rows but the front is a different story. Maybe the designer should correct this??

hi everyone, so the finished top is too short and needs few more inches... ok, no problem, but where am i supposed to crochet the extra rows (i mean bottom, middle, top or like double up each rows, etc)? could somebody help me please? many thanks in advance

I just completed this after working on it for 2 days. I read another reviewer's comment on the fact that it ended up inches short. So I added some rows guessing and it still ended up like a crop cardigan and I'm 4'11". I think it's cute but I was hoping that it would turn out as in the pic. This was my first time to crochet anything other than hats, scarves, and other small things. It was a lot of work and I'm okay with the outcome but wish it was the length pictured above. I felt like I should have kept adding rows to lengthen it but didn't. I'll know for next time. :-)

I am a little confused. I am where it says to With RS facing, miss next 6 hdc. Join yarn with sl st to next hdc. 1st row Ch 2. Hdc2tog over first 2 sts. 1 hdc in each hdc to end of row. Turn. Work 3 rows even. Rep last 4 rows 2 (2-2-2-3-3) times more. 17 (19-21-24-28-33) sts. I do not understand where it wants me to start at

Where the v begins at the bottom on the front (right) side. Join on the right side and work to the left. I hope this helps.

I LOVE THIS PATTERN!!!!! I AM 54 AND MY DAUGHTER, 28 AND DAUGHTER-IN-LAW,27, BOTH LOVE IT TOO. IT IS TIMELESS!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH

@Patches1958 Thanks so much for your comment! And we're so glad you love the pattern! Feel free to share photos on our Facebook wall! We'd love to see them :)

I would love to knit this pattern!! No, I don't crochet but it's on my to-do list for things to learn. Does anyone know where I can get such a pattern?......hopefully for free! ;-)

When I was printing this pattern, the ad for Olay Pro pop-up came up and was printed right over the 2nd page. Looks like this needs some work, or there will be some disappointed hookers.

I made this pattern a few years ago. I found the finished product to be too short. It needed a few more inches (yes inches) otherwise it was perfectly like the picture.

Hi, I am at the end of this project and I'm really confused. I have two finished pieces a back and a v-shaped front. Am I supposed to sew the back and front shoulder seams together? After that, I understand about where to start the 7 single crochet, but I don't know where to stop. I was going to give up, but after getting this far I was hoping I could get some help. Maybe I can email a picture of what I have to you?

I've crocheted for years but never attempted anything in the way of sweaters or vests. I'm anixous to give this pattern a try. Hopefully it will work out for Christmas presents for my two daughters and one daugther-in law. Gandma Pitcher, wish me luck!

I am a full figure woman and it's so hard to find so I am really excited to start this project!!! Thank you for the free pattern, it is greatly appreciated Happy sewing, Dee Burris

for Grandma Pitcher... follow the pattern... you only work on the right hand side of front piece until it says to "Fasten off". You then join in centre front band to work the other side as follows With RS facing, miss next 6 hdc. Join yarn with sl st to next hdc. 1st row Ch 2. Hdc2tog over first 2 sts. 1 hdc in each hdc to end of row. Turn. Work 3 rows even. Rep last 4 rows 2 (2-2-2-3-3) times more. 17 (19-21-24-28-33) sts. ......... continue to end of pattern.

I am confused about this pattern. Can someone help me.? Where it says FRONT Work from to as given for Back. Divide for Front Does this mean make 2 ? Is this the front ribbing? I don't know where to start this row?? Divide for Front 1st row (RS). Ch 2. 1 hdc in each of first 18 (20-22-25-30- 35) hdc. Hdc2tog over next 2 hdc (neck edge). Turn. Leave rem sts unworked. Grandma Pitcher

I crochet knit. Whenever I make crochet sweaters, I knit the ribbing instead of crocheting it. This sweater would look nice that way.
