Please tell me *where* in the pattern it says "use provisional cast on." I'm almost done with the back and reading ahead I see something like "Hem: Remove waste yarn from provisional cast on" Um, this is kind of a major omission. Not happy with Interweave right this minute. Also annoyed because my inbox is swamped with Knitting Daily emails, yet I had to "register" to get to post this comment.

Love it. I have been looking for just this item. My back gets cold and I wanted something that was not to heave but yet warm this is jut right. I love patterned knits. Just beautiful.
