I have to knit this -- as I tend to ignore graphs and videos, and others have knit it with no problem, I anticipate no problems... optimistic... it is such a graceful style

I don't know why no one else has caught this but there appear to be an error in either the instructions and/or the graph to go with the instruction...maybe both? The front and back pieces according the graph are suppose to have the same amount of row 140. However the instructions call for knitting 150 row for the front and only 140 for the front. If any of the two were to be longer, it would be the front not the back due to cinching that is done on the side along with the draping of collar. In any case, the back cannot be only 140 because the there would not be enough row to accomplish the increase up to 250 sts before knitting the additional 66 row after the increase. Someone should review and update the pattern. Best regards and happy knitting to you all.

Looks graceful and lovely!

Can't download HELP!

I've made this, and it is fabulous! it is a wonderfully clear and easy to follow pattern. i highly recommend it to anyone, even beginner knitters. This style is "in" just now, I get nothing but positive comments and people asking (begging) me to make them one!

I love this garment. Who ever thinks it is ugly and an atrocity isn't very fashion conscious and outdated in their fashion sense. I love this pattern and intend to make it straightaway.

The thought struck me that if you improvised and creatively added some rows of handspun art yarn and designed the rest to complement/coordinate, this would totally showcase your handspun art yarn!! I also agree with others here - posting negative comments on a FREE pattern is pretty shockingly rude.

Where are you people coming from. If you do not like the pattern fine. No need to comment, travel elsewhere. Its different . It would not do for all of us to like the same things. I do not care for it , however my daughter off 40 years likes it. GET A LIFE PEOPLE

I think someone in there 20's would wear this with a tank top under it. But for me i think not.

I am shocked to read such nasty things on a pattern that was offered freely.

Dear Night Flower: I'm sure CrystalKaren really appreciated your understanding, helpful comments, and accompanying eye roll. I can only imagine what a burden it must be for you to be so much smarter and computer literate than everyone else.

OK, I looked at the other pictures of a person actually wearing this atrocity and it does not look any better on a person than it does on the hanger. It looks like a bath towel or cheesecloth. Ugly!!!!!!!!!!

On the hanger, or on the person, this is UGLY as SIN! I hate to douse cold water on "creativity," but this is neither functional or flattering to ANYONE, so why bother? I wouldn't want to see this on any female, regardless of their figures! UGH!

OK......the pictures are great on the website, but how do you get pattern instructions? I have searched everywhere on the site, but to no avail.... I find it very annoying when a person has to jump through hoops to get a pattern. When attempting to search her other pages sometimes my computer would lock and I would receive a message her website in not responding.....very frustrating. Hope you can help. I spent more time searching and reading about her vacation!

There is a very obvious link to the pattern at the bottom of the page linked to above if you care to actually look. I found it straight away, reading tiny text, on my phone screen. For those who aren't computer literate enough to know how to scroll down a web page, here is a direct link to the pattern page. *eye roll*

That is a terrible picture. How is a person supposed to see how it looks on someone when shown hanging on a hanger??

How about clicking on the pattern's link? There are pictures of of a person wearing it. :/
