I am trying to print a pattern without printing all the pages and ads. Is this possible

Hello dregular, there is a white "Print" button directly under the name of the pattern. Pressing that button will create a print-friendly version of the pattern. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I can't wait to start this Sweater! When I looked at the photo I thought Oh So Gorgeous But they won't have it in my size... Boy,did I do a happy dance when I saw that it was included!! My current project (a long sleeve sweater) is on hold... on my way to choose my yarn! Thank-you so much for all your beautiful variety of free patterns!

I love this pattern and am trying to get it started. I have the Cable Yoke started (the first 4 rows) but for some reason I can't understand how to cont in pattern. My panel Pats A,B and C are in position but where do I start to continue in pattern? Is there an easier way for me to understand this part of pattern? Thank you so much for the pattern it is beautiful and I thought I could handle it but I am at a loss at the moment.

Hi Jo Ann, As this pattern is not ours, I suggest contacting the Patons Design Team on their website, Yarnspirations.com. It'd also be helpful to post your question on our Facebook page. We have a ton of talented followers who would love to help! Thanks, -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

You will continue on in the pattern as indicated, which means you will continue doing each row of each panel consecutively until the panels reach the lengths indicated for each size in the pattern.

Such a flattering design! i look forward to knitting this sweater. It will be no gift. It's all mine!

The yarn weight states DK, but the materials list shows a worsted weight, which is correct? Thanks

Always follow the materials list! We've amended our pattern listing to reflect the correct yarn weight. Thanks for your question. Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Many thanks for the explanation. Elizabeth

Could you please send me a copy of abbreviations for the 'Cable Yoke Cardigan'. Thanks. Di Stead

Please find the green underlined link, "Stitch Glossary" above. Thanks! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

What do I do with the 2 extra sts that are in the cable yoke pattern? instructions only add up to 26.

There are no extra stitches if the pattern is followed exactly as written-the panel is 26sts and there is a P1 at the beginning and the end bringing the stitch count to 28. hope thi helps.

A beautiful design, and I am eager to make this! Where on this site will I find a list of abbreviations and instructions explaining the same? English and American patterns appear to differ. Thank you

Hi skyeways 8437662, Please find the green underlined link above "Stitch Glossary." Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I think you mean to say 'Yoke' as opposed to Yolk.

You are correct! Thanks for drawing our attention to that error. Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I would love to make this cardigan but I do not know what T4B and T4F means. I guess it 4 back and 4 frontwise but don't know what the T stands for. Is this an American term? Elizabeth in France

it is a cable. Instead of two the front and knitting though (which is usually C4B or C4F) you purl stitches. It doesn't look like a traditional twisty cable then, but rather a diagonal line. T4B - Slip two stitches onto a cable needle and hold it to the back. Knit two stitches off of the main needle. Bring the yarn to the front and purl the two stitches off the cable needle. T4F - Slip two stitches onto a cable needle and hold it to the front. Purl two stitches off of the main needle. Bring the yarn to the back and knit the two stitches off the cable needle. T4B

I like the pattern, but good heavens, people! That's "Yoke" not "Yolk", we're not talking eggs here!
