  1. Has anyone made this sweater? I am at the part where it says shape hips, but the directions don’t make sense. I have two markers where the side seams would be, but if I follow these directions, I’d need to go around twice to add the 4 stitch increase and it will add it unevenly side to side.  I am wondering if there is an error.
