"Looks like a nice project, however the patterns from this website that are featured are frequently missing so much essential information, that some of them are useless. The website for the yarn has to be translated and the translation to english is not great, so proves to be more than a little frustrating."
"There is no "book" you must click on the link to see the pattern on the page it links to. After you get to the page, you need to scroll down about 1/3 of the page to find the written pattern there. Hope this helps, happy knitting."
"Sorry, I don't know of a video for that stitch pattern. I did make this project about 10 or so years ago and I remember that it did not really look like the picture until it was completed, while it was on the needles it looked like it wasn't lining up. Is it possible that is what is happening with you?"

I love that this pattern is easiest enough for a beginner to tackle. Great way to learn how to knit a sweater. I will be making this for a friend's new grandbaby. I think to make it my own, I will be adding some crocheted flowers and buttoms unique. When I find a super easy and quick pattern I like to make a couple to donate to hospital for mama's that have no special things to dress baby in.

Garter stitch is my favorite pattern because it means plain knitting! This pattern is great because the first three inches of the back, front and sleeve are knitted separately in garter stitch, which means they can be knit while watching TV! But knitting the rest of it will need special dedicated time as there is a lot of decreasing going on to shape the sweater

I'm a fairly experienced knitter and I'm not even going to TRY this pattern. The instructions are too confusing and there are plenty of patterns with very clear/professional instructions. Sorry
Jul 16, 2014
not sure what you are going on about-this pattern was remarkably clear-I made 2 in less than a week for my god daughter who is having twins. They worked out so well, i've taken the pattern to my knitting group to make for the hospitals. I think its unfair of you to blame the designer for your lack of skills or understanding of the pattern.

THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THIS PATTERN LEAVE MUCH TO DESIRED. YHE SUTHOR COULD HSVE BEEN MORE SPECIFIC AND INFORMATIVE SINCE SHE SEEMS TO BE AN EXPERT.

Hello I am really struggling with the decreasing element of this pattern. I have read and re-read the pattern, but I cannot see how it works. There are way too many stitches left, soI'm guessing that part of it must be repeated. Help, please!! Thanks Vanessa
