"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."

Bind off all sts firmly.
Make every 8th V using B, or randomly if you prefer, regardless of what round it is. Use the “knit on” cast on method throughout this project. There are many times that stitches are cast on in the middle of a row or the end of a row.
The sweater begins with a row of mitered V’s at the hem. The next row of V’s is picked up and knit along the top edges of the previous row. The sweater is worked in the round up to the underarms, then divided. Triangles are worked to fill in the spaces along the armhole and neck edges.
Make 10 (12, 14) Basic Mitered Vs. They are each separate at this point. Lay them out on edge with the cast
on edges pointed down.
Cast on 6 sts, pick up and knit 6 sts along 2nd edge of one V, cast on 1 st (center), pick up and k 6 sts along the 1st edge of next V, cast on 6 sts – 25 sts.
Work remainder of this V as for Basic Mitered V. Continue to work 9 (11, 13) more Vs around.
Continue to add additional Tiers of “V”s until sweater measures 14 (15¾,17½)”.
Divide for Front and Back
To leave sides open for Armholes, at right edge work ½ V as follows:
Cast on 6 sts, pick up 6 sts, cast on 1 st – 13 sts.
Row 1 (WS): P1, k to end.
Row 2: K to last 2 sts, k2tog – 1 st dec’d.
Rep last 2 rows, 6 more times – 6 sts rem.
Bind off all sts firmly.
Work 4 (5, 6) Mitered Vs across.
At left edge work ½ V as follows:
Cast on 1 st, pick up 6 sts, cast on 6 sts – 1 st dec’d.
Row 1 (WS): Knit to last st, p1.
Row 2: Ssk, k to end – 1 st dec’d.
Rep last 2 rows, 6 more times- 6 sts rem.
Bind off all sts firmly.
Return to right edge and work 5 (6, 7) Mitered V’s across.
Repeat these last 2 Tiers until Armholes measure 8½ (8½, 10)”.
Work as for Front.
Weave in ends.
At top edge, anchor front to back at tips of Vs, leaving 3 (4, 5) Vs open for neck.

Such a pretty top and the silk cotton blend yarn would feel fabulous. The pattern is somewhat complicated, but it looks doable since each row of Vs is picked up from the finished pattern section below. It might be good to practice the trellis before investing in the yarn.

Love the look of this knit trellis top! Any way to show a brief video of each step? Otherwise this may be too advanced for me to follow and I have been knitting for years. Thanks.
