And ArtandTerri - if you go to the picture of the sweater and touch the line that says "Click Here For Knitting Pattern" the pattern will automatically open on your screen. You won't have to do anything else. Shame on the people who are supposed to be monitoring these posts!!! Come Help Your Customers!!!

reading the pattern farther down, I believe it means you "slip 5 stitches" from the L needle to the R needle ( the yarn in back means knit-wise rather than purl-wise) and that's all. Just slip as it says and go on to the next part of the instructions. It's just a part of what makes the pattern. A couple of lines farther down, you will read about what to do with the "long floats" made a few rows previous...well, that is these 5 stitches on those RS rows. So, just relax and slip the stitches from the L to the R without doing anything else to them and it should be fine.

Where are the knit tee patterns for men?

There aren't any, I've never seen a pattern for any in over 40 years of knitting. i've also never seen a man wear one in over 40 years of knitting.

Slip the 5 stitches to the back....where to the back? It would be nice if Barb Bettegnies Editor of Creative Knitting magazine would have the courtesy to answer this question for those of us who don't understand.

Why would the editor of Creative knitting be answering questions on this web siite? She does not get to see them here, furthermore if you have issues with the pattern you should be directing them to the creator Melissa Leapman. All you are doing is slipping 5 stitches with the yarn held loosely across the back of the work-its not rocket science and the designer even went to the trouble of explaining how to do it, it is going to create the design and the texture for the pattern.

How do I download, I can everything but download?

Not all patterns are automatically available for download, downloading and storing copy written patterns on your computer is illegal, its available for printing, so that's what you should be doing here.

JanetLU I am confused just reading these questions. I love the T and the color, but I don't think I have a clue what to do with those five stitches. It looks devine in the picture, though.

All you are doing is slipping the 5 stitches knit wise with the yarn held loosely across the back without working them, they are used later in the pattern to create the texture and design of the pattern.

Please explain why we have to sign in for comments. It is ridiculous. This is not Fort Knox , the White House or even sensitive personal info that you need such control.

Sorry, but I still dont understand what to do with "sliding 5 stitches" Do you mean to take the yarn you are working with to the back of the piece and then slide the stitches to the other needle, then bring yarn working with back to the front of piece and purl rest of pattern? When directions are convoluted it takes the fun out of knitting or crocheting. I then tend to do what I want with the pattern.

I just finished this sweater. It knitted up wonderfully. When it is saying to slide the 5 stiches with the yarn in back. This is done when purling from the wrong side, but for those 5 stitches, put the yarn to the back as if you were going to knit and then slide the stitches over. Once done, bring the yarn back to the front and purl the rest of the pattern. When you are knitting several after you have done the sliding on two rows, take the right needle up from the bottom underneath the loops made with yarn that was loose in back, and knit the next stitch. Once you have done it a few times, it really is quite simple, but the instructions have you going HUH!!! Good luck.

Hi Jane....sorry but I still don't understand what you mean by "when purling from the wrong side, but for those 5 stitches, put the yarn to the back as if you were going to knit and then slide the stitches over." Put them to the back "how"? And where is back? Do you mean pick up the stitches as if you're going to knit and slip them. Sorry but this all doesn't really make any sense without seeing it...for me. Thanks, Kathy

Hi again Jane.....I think the light bulb just turned on in my brain as to what to do.......sometimes it takes a bit of repeated reading......thx

No, it's really not clear enough. Am I supposed to go in from the wrong side, knit a stitch catching the loops from the opposite side into that stitch to hold them up into the pattern? That's the best interpretation I can conceive based on the photo. Without the photo I would be totally lost.

I admit the instructions are a bit hazy. The yarn is actually left to the back of the work. It should look like 5 stitches that didn't worked. The yarn is left looking like a loose loop on the front of the piece. After you have the 2 rows with the loops showing you will be coming through and knitting a stick from under the loops. Hope this helps, the sweater is beautiful when finished.

it is not clear to me what "sl next 5 sts with yarn loosely in back" means. is this to be held on a cable needle and stitched like a cable? please advise
