I started to knit this pattern and as mentioned below, it is quite difficult to read. I had to redo the collar a number of times.  Are the 5 seed stich done at the beginning and end of every rows for the entire collar? Also the Collar chart has a 13 st repeat but how often do we repeat them? The second row we have 96 stitches then have to do the pattern chart which has 31 stitches but we are supposed to have 42 stiiches left after for the yoke which doesn't add up. can anyone help? Thank you so much!

I love this design!  The pattern is quite difficult to read and there's a big jump between sizes for some reason.  I'm using slightly smaller yarn to accomodate this as I'm in the gap.  This should solve the problem easily.  There seems to be a mistake in the sleeves.  Surely there should be more stitiches?  I'm not quite there yet but thought someone should know.  I'll have to compare with other sizes and make adjustments.
