I am having a problem with the sleeve pattern . I can't figure out the increases. is it every 3rd row or every 3 rows are increased. help.

This is the perfect cardigan to wear everywhere, everyday. I love the collar design and the fair isle pattern is pretty, but this could be worked up plain just to make it easier and quicker if one wanted to. I honestly would probably work it that way myself because I am so impatient.

beautiful cardigan and the design captures the northern lights very well I see a search for more yarn in my future

I made this sweater and it turned out great! Main color is brown and design is cream, green and orange. Was relatively easy to make, very nice! Thank you!

I did 't have any problems downloading the pattern my iPad. I am in the process of making this sweater.

I have saved a pattern but cant open it to see the full pattern. What must I do

You have probvaby saved it in the wrong format-go back to the pattern again and cut and copy it into your notepad on computer-that program has an automatic recover document program and saves in a standard format. If you saved it to your computer and can't open-it is an issue with your computer, not the pattern or site you got it from. Hope this helps!
