  1. I am having trouble with this pattern, finished size 171/2. I have worked the first half of the back and it measures 10″, measured along armhole edge. The right front is worked down to the 42 stitches, after 16, not 18 increases as stipulated in the pattern. The measurement along the armhole edge, at the 42 stitches point is 9″, not 71/4 as stipulated by the pattern. I am using an extra fine merino and have the correct gauge. Help please.

    Thank you,


  2. I bought the Interweave spring 2013 so I could make the Vertex Cardigan. I have read through the directions several times and am having some difficulty with the beginning. I cannot seem to find the part of the instructions that tell me to do the garter section of the neck edge on the back and I am only ending up with the short row shaping on one side of the back. I assume the short row shaping for the shoulders on the back is balanced. I checked  for errata  but couldn’t find anything.  Is there a section of directions missing? Please help.
