I love the design of this lace sweater. It is really unique and I definitely want to start it soon. I love that it is made in DK yarn and I really like the ribbed panel. It makes the shaping easier. I love the cotton-ish gray yarn that was used also.

I like this sweater just wish I had more hours in my minutes to be able to knit it and all the other patterns I have saved. Wondering too if I can find this yarn in Ottawa...

i have just managed to do the ridge, has anyone had trouble when they have reached 91 stitches, it says pattern to last 4 stitches i only have 3 it's asking ssk, k2 i have tryed this row about 10 times now, driving me mad i love the jumper and really want to finish it. Is their anyone who has had this problem and can help me.

Just made this sweater in Sidar Calico - lovely . Took 7 balls of wool for small size (size 12 UK). One of the nicest sweaters I've knitted for a long time, had no problem with the pattern easy to knit.

I would love to make this. Does anyone know how much yarn it takes for a Large (or any other) size?

Have the instructions been corrected? AndI don't see how much yarn it takes. ??

I am completely lost doing the back, where you proceed in Ridge Pat. Rows 1-4 are done and then it says to repeat 4 times more. Keeping in ridge pattern you decrease in the next two rows. But how long do you keep up the Ridge Pattern. I have a total of 5 repeats. In the picture it looks like 6 or 7. And it says nothing about doing the 4 rows that started it all, making the large ridge that started this whole section. (On RS knit row, then knit, purl and knit next three rows. Please can I get some help ASAP!!!

Me too. Ended up re-writing that bit of the pattern.

didn't find anywhere to post to pintrest

Hi, I'm making this in a size L and have just got to the point of shaping the back at the arm holes. I've looked through the rest of the pattern and have found two inconsistencies, please can someone clarify them for me? First at the bottom of the pattern for the back, the pattern states I will have 95 stitches. The pattern then describes a 4 row pattern which results in a decrease of 6 stitches, to be repeated twice more. This should be a total decrease of 18 stitches, leaving 77. The pattern states that 83 stitches will remain. Second, the pattern for the front is split into L,2/3XL and 4/5XL or XS/S, M,L and XL. L appears in both options! Which one should it be in? Many thanks Stephanie

I thought it was me but its obviously not. Im going to just work the pattern as is then do a sleeve and see how it fits!!

I used pale blue baby yarn & it turned out beautifully

I think this pattern may need CORRECTIONS. From the cast of stitches to shape the raglan, it says to maintain the ridge pattern, but the following two rows in each size, alter that fact and make the fourth row a pearl row, wherein if one is following the ridge pattern as written, the fourth row should be a knit. I have knitted and undone, knitted and undone this section and it does not end the ridge pattern the way the pattern started, though the picture shows that it does. There is a large garter stitch at the beginning then a more fine ridge on the front of the jumper for 5+ ridges. The pattern does not end with a large ridge again before it goes into the lace section again. I knit left handed, and my knits and pearls are in reverse to right handed knitters, but I don't think that is the problem. There is a mistake in the written pattern. If I am wrong can somebody please let me know where I am actually going wrong. I really love the jumper to as far as I have been able to knit it. Thanks

Would love to make this, but the yarn details provide no info on the required amounts. Tried to find the pattern on the Bernat site, but it does not appear to be there. I f someone figures out how much yarn is needed-could you share the info with everyone, thanx.

The pattern has been edited to include the missing information. Thanks for bringing that to our attention! Editors of AllFreeKnitting
