The link for this pattern no longer works since Classic Elite Yarns has gone out of business. Is there another way to get this pattern?

I've had a 5 lbs. cone of worsted weight cotton sitting in my stash for about 5 years, I think I have finally found the pattern to use it up!

The gauge you have listed here is wrong. Not only is it different from the pattern page, it doesn't make sense Gauge 1 stitches, 2 rows, 3 inches. stockinette stitch

This is a good basic cardigan pattern and the hood is an extra plus. It should knit up easily since the instructions are fairly simple. You can always use a nice cardigan. I have learned to appreciate hoods since they are helpful when it is windy or you need a little protection from the sun. Thank you for the pattern.

Can't provide a picture but I've made this sweater twice,both our of the same yarn, one for my daughter and one for my great-grandson's godmother, They both love them and wear them when they take the dogs to the beach for their run.

This hooded cardigan pattern is one great way to learn to knit this garment. It is one of so many that I intent to make for that purpose. All free, fave, all free, etc. Are my favorite websites for learning crafts. The tutorials are truly the best for me.
