Beautiful sweater, but agree with above poster.  The pattern needs clarification -- the written instructions and the figures do not correlate.

I've been admiring this pattern ever since it showed up. I downloaded it and look at it every so often. I'll really get to making it at some point. But thank you very much for making it available. The one piece of advice I've gotten from this site that I think pertains to this pattern is "read through the pattern first before starting" It'll save on the frustration. I think all the designers are very good at editing their patterns before posting.

I love the look of this sweater but don't crochet.  Is it possible to knit it?
