Easy to make, simple instructions. My only adjustment was to do a three needle bind off at shoulders and made the sleeves from top down to avoid bulky seams. Buttobhole band straight forward, but perhaps the pattern hasbeen edited since the first comments were posted?

Wouldn't it be amazing if I woke up tomorrow to find comprehensible buttonhole band instructions for this pattern? It's the only thing I have left to knit.

Wanted to let you know that this tutorial was featured on the At Play Blog today. http://atplayonline.com/2013/08/09/friday-finds-8913-edition/ Thanks Megan

I suggest ,that you remake the pattern , Obviously adjusting sleeves etc.The pattern is Adorable and would love to knit it ,but know time to mess about working it out.

Now I am at the sleeves.. the pattern says to "Continue even until piece measures 6", place a marker at each end and, continues for 6 rows. Cast off." This means that the 6 rows will match the 6 stitches on the front and back. Now thisleaves a 6" wide sleeve to go up the front armhole, 6", and down the back armhole, 6"! This will not work! So what I am going to do is this: cast off 6 stitches at each end. Then I will knit even 4 inches, and then form a cap to the sleeve with a 4" edge. This will match the sleeve opening of front and back.

This is the Bernat Pattern which has the same problem. The first five rows of each piece are knit with size five and then you change to size 6.

while shaping for the shoulder,it is mentioned to cast off 7 stitches.Should it be done on either side? I am confused in this section.Can you explain more clearly?

 

Aug 4, 2012

I had to go to the Bernat site to get the pattern as there are no * asterisks * to note the repeat stitches. The pattern is great but, as written, does not merit of 5 stars.
