Tried this craft? What did you think?

How many yards of yarn???

Rowan brushed fleece is 115 yds. per 50g, so total yardage will depend on which size you are making.

Help!!! Don't understand what to do on the front and left panels..Keeping 3 sts slip stitch edging as set...etc...

Keeping 3 sts slip stitch edging as set, would be easier to understand if they said keep 3sts slip stitch edging as established, simply means that the 3 edge stitches the same as already established and work subsequent instructions after the 3 already established stitches.

This appears to be a super cozy and comfortable cardigan. The directions seem to be clear but I do wonder about the yarn. I googled it and it seems to be by Rowan and just a tad expensive. There was a link to alternatives so that might help if price is an issue. Why do we have to go to an information page to get finishing instructions? Would be nice for it to be included.

A link has been included for additional information for those who need it and you appear to be condemning them for it.

Help!! I have knitted the pieces, but cannot find the "information page" for instructions on pressing the pieces to size before assembling.

Hello gamburch 1543946! The information you requested can be found by following this link: http://www.knitrowan.com/files/downloadfiles/Sizing_Information.pdf Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

such a look it has - the hardest part of knitting it will be locating the yarn. Another wonderful pattern thanks again
