"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

Oh, BTW....correction and a typo Add "increase" to sleeves directions. (Change to St st and inc. 1 st each end every 9th row 5 (5, 0, 0, 0) times) "for" not "fir." Very nice pattern ! Thanks for sharing.

I think this is a bottom-up pattern. The sleeves, fronts, and back are knit and then joined together, to knit the yoke with flowers with all the parts. (ending with the neck.) Nice pattern !

Floral yoke cardigan knitting pattern is a top down project, knit almost entirely in one piece. The kind of patterns I prefer to knit.

Actually, it's a bottom up pattern, you work the body, then the sleeves without binding off since you are joining them all later to do the yoke.
