"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."

"The Caroline Tunic is a versatile top that easily pairs with a pencil skirt or capris. This top is an excellent project for knitters of all levels. Using a simple stitch combination, this top is a nice project for a beginner looking to try something a little more challenging. The texture pattern across the bust, along with subtle waist shaping, highlights the feminine form. Pattern Notes Bust texture length will vary for each person, due to variations in bust size versus cup sizes. Save time by measuring as you go along."
