  1. Are there any corrections for the back of sweater after you do the ribbing?

  2. Is it possible to make this sweater longer (mid-thigh) or do you have a pattern that is similar at that length?

  3. I am anxious to knit this cardigan.
    I, however, am so undecided about size.
    I am about 40″ but the large seems so large as it accommodates all the way up to a 2XL. However the smallest size goes down to a 28″ and somehow I think that would be too small.
    Advice, please.
    Thank you.

  4. I am working on the Envelope Cardigan pattern and finding it difficult to understand the instructions for the Shape Collar section, where the directions say: “work 3 rows even in pat, taking inc sts into ribbing.” It is the counting stitches that i do not understand. Any clarification would be appreciated! Lillypat

  5. I read the first comment about whether the number of cast on stitches is incorrect. I didn’t see any followup on the comment. I am getting ready to start the sweater and wondering if I am going to be doing it correctly.

  6. Casting amount for the front and back is wrong. Shouldn’t it be back cast on stitches should be 79 stitches and front cast on stitches should be 159 stitches.

  7. Do you have a crochet pattern for an envelope cardigan?

  8. I would love to see what the back of the knit envelope cardigan looks like and was disappointed that none of the pictures in your different displays showed the back!!


  9. wish there was a similar design in crochet?

  10. I would like the pattern but when I click on “Get Pattern here” nothing happens/

  11. I like it but I want to see it spread out to see the whole shape.
