"Looks like a nice project, however the patterns from this website that are featured are frequently missing so much essential information, that some of them are useless. The website for the yarn has to be translated and the translation to english is not great, so proves to be more than a little frustrating."
"There is no "book" you must click on the link to see the pattern on the page it links to. After you get to the page, you need to scroll down about 1/3 of the page to find the written pattern there. Hope this helps, happy knitting."
"Sorry, I don't know of a video for that stitch pattern. I did make this project about 10 or so years ago and I remember that it did not really look like the picture until it was completed, while it was on the needles it looked like it wasn't lining up. Is it possible that is what is happening with you?"
"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"

I like to download the patterns and then print them out and annotate and count on the pattern itself. I don't see where I can download this pattern to my pattern files.

I'm not sure that this is the correct place to leave my comment, but since I can't find another, I will proceed here. I was notified last week that I had won the allfreekntting drawing for a sweater kit. Yesterday, the yarn, pattern, needles, etc, arrived. We are knitters kit, complete with The Petite Wool (100% Peruvian Highland Wool) and pattern for the Easy Krysten Sweater, by Krysten Ritter, is just beautiful. The yarn is just scrumptious, soft and cuddly! I so appreciate allfreeknitting and the opportunity to experience new yarns and patterns, with videos and instructions. It i such a great resource! I'm excited to get started! Thanks, again! Connie

I am through the first chart. The climbing vines chart has a stitch indicated by a single diagonal line that is not represented in the key. I looked up standard chart stitches, but most say this is symbol means SSK. I tried that, but it seems to be decreasing a lot of stitches. Can someone provide direction please? Thanks so much - I don't want to abandon this project as it is intended for a gift. Carla
