Designer Shirley Paden

Finished Size 38 (45 1/2)" bust circumference. Sweater shown measures 38", modeled with 4" of positive ease.

Yarn The Knitting Boutique Susquehanna Fingering (85% organic polwarth wool, 15% silk; 360 yd [329 m]/4 oz [113 g]): talc, 5 skeins.

Needles Sizes 2 (2.75 mm), 3 (3.25 mm), and 4 (3.5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); stitch holders; size G/6 (4 mm) crochet hook; one 1" button; tapestry needle.

Gauge 30 sts and 36 rows = 4" in charted patt on largest needles; 31 sts and 37 rows = 4" in charted patt on middle-size needles; 32 sts and 38 rows = 4" in charted patt on smallest needles.

A lace heart motif and twisted stitches make a fine and detailed fabric in the Ocracoke Cardigan. Edgings are simple to keep the focus on the stitch and silhouette.

I'm having an impossible time getting past row 5 of the motif pattern! Is there an error?

Please add the yarnweight data to the patterns.  I'd like to see both the name of the yarn weight as well as the number weight  eg double knit 3.  That makes it easier to figure out suitable yarn swaps if i don't like  a particular yarn used for a pattern.  Thanks!
