Cont even until Back measures same length as Front before shoulder. I don't see anything referencing where the shoulder ends on the front pieces. On the fronts I continued even as instructed until measuring 4 3/4 inches from bottom of armhole. But I cannot figure out how long to make back. Can anyone please help?? Many thanks in advance. It's for an Easter gift

I made this recently in a soft yellow and it turned out really nice. The sweater works up quickly.

what does ending with RS row mean ,left /right front pattern...

RIGHT and LEFT FRONT (make alike). Cast on 52 (55-58-63) sts. Work in garter st (knit every row) for 2 ins [5 cm]. Straight away shaping of the neck. What about length of the cardigan. Need your help please. Thanks, Leena Shape front: Dec 1 st at beg of row on next and every following alt row to 35 (38-47-50) s

that is correct-you will start the front open slope after your base rows. decreasing 1 stitch when the pattern directs down to the number of stitches designated will give you the downward slope necessary to create the sweater as shown. what you are calling neck shaping is not-it is the angular slope of the front of the sweater.

length of the cardigan please.

GrannyGoode, regarding the printing...what I do is copy the pattern and picture into Microsoft Word, and that way I get the whole pattern and I can save it into my knitting pattern folder to use again and again! hope this helps.

Wonderful pattern! Tried twice to print it out, only to receive pages 2 and 3 only. The first page was blank -- no picture, no beginning instructions. Checked my printer settings, all OK. So how can I print page 1, so as to make the pattern complete? Thank You!!

Made this kimono..very easy but the yarn suggested does not stripe up exactly as the picture shown. In the picture the stripes are aligned across the front, etc. That does not happen when knitting. But the kimono looks nice anyway.

I just love the pattern baby knit kimono. thanks
