  1. Hi! I am working on this and just got to the bottom of the first sleeve. The number of stiches don’t seem to  line up with the number of decreases before beginning the cable cuff. Can someone please help me out?


  2. I agree, there seems to be a problem with the number of stitches between each k2 tog.   If worked as written, the decreases would take place over 3 rounds.  I’m going to try doing all the decreases in one round to see if I like the look.

  3. I got it to work, and the creator was also very helpful. What a beautiful pattern!

    Totally read those 2 rows wrong, I think my eye couldn’t follow along the way it printed out over 2 lines.

  4. I’m going to start the Gathered blouse sweater but in reviewing the pattern I have a question about the stitch count in the beginning

    If you cast on 125 stitches for size 40 1/2 and increase 2 stitches on rnd 2 why does the stitch count after round 2 show 150 sts. I’m confused by this. Can someone please clarify this for me?
