  1. I wish I could just get this one pattern and not the whole magazine. since I am just starting back into knitting after twenty years. Do you sell just one pattern, and if you do, when do you put the single patterns from your magazine for sale?

  2. I have a question about the pattern….why does the body cable diagram say “repeat 3 times”, yet the row numbering on right side of the diagram does not reflect that????

    thanks, the sweater is looking amazing!

     

  3. help…body.  at the decrease row do i decrease both sides or only the one side, for a total of how many decreases on that row only.  thanks very much.  mary

    I saw this sweater and loved it- I thought it would be a great sweater to try my hand at knitting cables- I was right and they look great, I can’t wait to wear it. However …

    I am just beginning to knit the sleeves and am a little confused.  Am not quite sure how the short rows should be done.  Are they knit downward toward the bottom of the sleeve back and forth and then do I pick up stitches on either side of the armhole until the underarm where the sleeve will be joined to be knit in the round to the end?  I hope this question is not too confusing, I’m just trying to picture the formation of the sleeve in my head.  Thanks for your time.  I look forward to your response.  K.
