I couldn't find the pattern for this sweater, but judging from the pictures I found, maybe you are starting with the tie\ribbing at the bottom of the sweater?  Then picking up stitches to knit the body in the round?

Hi cakirkette,

I agree totally with you.  It just goes to prove that a knitter needs to completely read and understand the pattern before knitting it. And I must confess that at times I dont do this and then I get into frogging!   The tie and the bottom ribbing is all one piece and then the body of the pullover will be made by picking up stitches along the ribbing.  The pattern is found in the KnitScene 2011 magazine that just came out.

Happy knitting, Zoe Smile
