On FRONT- shape Neck- please help. I have 61 stitches (RS facing me), I did K2, K2TOG, K5. Can you please explain the remaining Shape Neck instruction? Not understanding, leave which remaining stitches on spare needle? Making XS. Thanks!

After you do the K2, K2tog,K5 you are leaving the other 43 stitches on a spare needle and only working the 8 stitches created after the K2 K2tog K5 which means you are only working 8 stitches until you go back to work the other stitches.

This sweater just oozes romance. Perfect for date night or to wear to a winter party, it evokes the glamour of old Hollywood. The Bernat Satin yarn provides a touch of elegance all the while being an easy care machine wash and dry product.

Please consider making patterns a bit bigger. Wide necklines look fantastic on larger frames. Please let me know if you expand your sizes, it would be most appreciated.

I got stuck after sweing the raglans and introducing circular needles...the instructions say to decrease sts but the numbers of sts stated that you should have are very different from the result after decreasing...anyone can help?

Hi Member 2159600, We just checked with our tech editor, and it looks like you should have 140 stitches after you finish the collar. You may have decreased the wrong amount of stitches somewhere along the way. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I got stucked right after sewing the raglans...introducing circular needles it also indicates to decrease sts, but the number of stitches indicated don't make sense according with the decreases! Can anyone help?

In the finishing section it states: Next row: *K2. P2. K2. P1. Rep from * around. Is this correct? Is the last entry supposed to be P1 or P2? It doesn't make sense that all of a sudden you only P1 Can someone please clarify if this is correct? Thank you

Sorry! I found the two size needles!!! I am looking forward to making this sweater :-)

The pattern refers to changing from larger needles to smaller needles and back again in several places, but only one size needle (4mm, U.S. 6) is listed in needed materials. Please clarify. Thanks!
