Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love this elegant little sweater, the addition of the bobbles/knots give it a wonderful texture and allure. The yarn specified is an easy care acrylic, but I think it would be wonderful knit up in a wool silk blend. It would be a perfect sweater for the holidays too, knit in black or a festive color.

sleeves cast 6 stiches 1st row ok, but I do not have enough stitches on 2nd row to K3 what did I miss?

Thank you for including plus sizes in this beautiful sweater. Something I rarely see. I usually stick to hats, scarves and the like. Looking forward to trying it.

You're very welcome! I hope you enjoy the pattern! -Kathryn, Editor of AllFreeKnitting.com

the directions for the KNOT is listed in the stitch glossary.

This is the prettiest sweater I've ever seen.

Please find the instructions for the "Knot" stitch above under "Abbreviations". Thanks. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Our apologies. You can find the information under "Stitch Glossary."

This is very cute pattern, but I do not see how to make the "knot", please advise.

I like the pattern, but reading it through, there are no instructions for the 'knot' pattern Betty
