"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

This is really cute! I love the different stitches used. They not only give a nice variety of textures, but they also keep the project from becoming boring. Unfortunately it is only written for one size and is too small for me. Has anyone made this in a larger size?

This is a really neat pattern. I like the placement of the cable pattern. Has anyone used a brand of yarn other than the one given in the pattern? I guess I'm interested in yarn content. Would someone recommend a cotton or acrylic??

God sweater to make for all the seasons. It just adds bit of warmth. The size is good for me but I am surprised it is not offered in other sizes. I like working with the size needles it calls for and the addition of a "tubular stitch" looks interesting. Thank you for the pattern.

why is this offered in only one size? How many of us do you think wear a size 10?
Apr 27, 2023
This website does not determine the size(s) a pattern is offered in, the designer does. This designer only offers it in one size and the size is 10. An experienced knitter can look at the gauge and the directions in the pattern and make it smaller or larger to suit their needs. Hope this helps, happy knitting.
