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.

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!

I love the front of the cardigan but the sleeves are too plain and mundane as accompaniments..

Love the front, the back and sleaves are a dissapointment.

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?
