This arrangement of cables looks great but I don't think it would be very practical, namely if it's cool enough to wear such a think garment won't my neck freeze?!   Julia, England

I'll be buying her book as I think she's a fabulous designer: but I don't care for the collars especially big ones, as I'm short and have a  short neck as well. So any of the sweater/coats on the video would have to be redesigned by me so I can wear them.

Today's IWK newsletter showed the designer and gave a link to this garment.  The page BEGAN -- with a discussion of how EASE was important and how vital it is for the designers to SHOW not only the finished sizes -- but also howmuch ease is allowed in that number.  It ALSO gave an example with a pattern that went up to about 56 inches. 

Imagine my disappoitment -- here's this truly lovely sweater and yes, it's something that I'd be quite pleased to wear -- but it only goes up to a finished size of 48 inches.  That means this will fit an adult woman of no more than 44 inches at the bustline.   The pattern is beautiful -- but it would be a Chinese Fire Drill to try to write it UP a couple of sizes to go around my 50 inch bust and have the needed SIX inches of ease, please and thank you. 

I'll be downloading it anyway -- in the hopes that I might be able to upsize by using a larger yarn or needle than what is called for.  

Pretty pattern -- pretty, feminine, graceful, elegant sweater.  Just wish it had been sized up more -- especially since THAT is what the article spoke of that was attached to the pattern.

Disappointed again --

While I love the pattern for the sweater, and downloaded a copy for future use'; I would like  a way to be able to understand the way the stitches are done in this pattern. IS there a key to explain or decode the stitching pattern for this sweater?

Can you send the answer to my email,

Thank you!
