  1. I tried this and had to rip it out twice.  It just doesn’t seem to work out.  Pattern is hard to follow, with chart mixed in the same row as other basic pattern and repeated 3 times.  There are some YO before a sl marker that don’t seem to add up either!



  2. How do I reach the designer to resolve my problems with this pattern.  It’s impossible to follow as written.  After knitting the seed stitch border and the set up row, I have riipped it out several times and am STILL on Row 1. 

  3. I love this little bolero, although I made it a bit longer for myself.  I’m also planning on making the sleeves a bit longer, maybe about elbow length.  Any words of advice?

  4. Is it possible that the number of stitches for the back is wrong?  It seems like there should be more, like there should be the border + the left + the other border + the right.  Not 12(the number listed for small) but double that?  Try that, because that’s what I am going to try next.
