  1. The first two rows of instructions (Set-up row & Next row) are both wrong side (WS)?  Am I missing something?  At the end of the Set-up row instructions it says “Work 7 rows in patt, ending with a RS row”  So should I do the set-up row 8 times and do the even rows in “reverse” so they are ribbed? 

    Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

  2. Did anyone answer qpdbug? The answer is: The set-up row is repeated 7 times ending with a RS row.  THEN you start the “Next Row” on the WS.

    There is an error on that “Next Row” where you increase by 4 stitches: After working the patt to the last 43 sts, p3, [M1, p10] 2 times, M1 p3:sl m, ….”  The pattern left out the very important “p3” after the M1.


    Hope this helps anyone who is making this sweater.  I am enjoying the process and love the look of the sweater.  If anyone has finished it and found other errors, PLEASE let me know.


  3. Just to clarify, the pattern is correct as written; I’m not sure why you would need to add a p3, as the stitch counts add up correctly already.
