I would love to save this pattern for later but I can't find the Save button to save it to my all free knitting library Can you tell me where it has gone to

Hello mrscp1946, to save the pattern, click on the gray button with the "+" sign at the end of the pattern. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I love how cozy this looks! I'm not sure how it would look on me-- I'm not the biggest fan of turtlenecks-- but I could always make it and then give it away if I don't like how it looks on me!

This is such a comfortable looking sweater. It's loose enough you can throw it over another top and be nice and warm. It's perfect for the beginner crocheter. I originally started to learn to crochet and knit so I could make sweaters which are my favorite type of tops to go to in the fall and winter

Okay, I guess I'll have to rename this sweater because I cannot wear yellow. I really like the looks of the sweater, even the cowl!!! The other thing I really like is that the pattern is for beginners which means I can work up a garment and wear it after my labors. That's unusual to find! Oh and now to choose my color...will it be green or blue!?!

What a warm and comfortable-looking sweater, perfect for casual wear! I'd love to see what it looks like when worn. I can't tell how long it is or how baggy it is. Has anyone made this and can answer this question? Better yet, I would love to see a picture of it being worn.

If you haven't made the item on All Free sites you shouldn't rate it. There is a box to check to post but not rate ) It helps the folks that are wanting to make it know if there are issues before we start. I always look at feedback before I start. Not trying to be rude, just share what the rating is for.

That check box is new. We used to have no choice but to add a rating before it allowed us to comment.

I'm looking to make this sweater for myself...but notice the finished bust sizes are HUGE! The size large finishes at 5 feet around (60")...is that right? I agree, comments should be actual rating or question about a pattern.

I just found this link to the pattern on Ravelry, and it has pictures of someone wearing it! Thought that might help: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ease-pullover

I usually don't like knitting sweaters with so many parts but the directions on this patterns are excellent. It will make sewing it together much easier. It is the perfect sweater for winter.

This has so much going for it - and there are so many colours in which to knit it. Myself I would choose a clear blue or perhaps a darker shade - a burgundy would be good too, and the looser fit would be great for those times when one wants to be truly casual - walking the dog in the spring and fall or on a cool summer day for instance

I love that this sweater is loose fitting. Perfect for those days I want to feel relaxed rather than confined in my clothing. I also love how everything (with the exception of the cowl) is made on two needles. I can use the circular needles, but I vastly prefer straight needles. I am not fond of a cowl neck. I always feel uncomfortable with anything around my neck. Would it be easy to alter the pattern to have either a shorter, wider cowl neck, or a regular neckline?

That was exactly my question. I would prefer a regular neckline, but I can see problems in making the adjustments, at least for me. We would have to decrease, but at what rate I don't know. Trial and error might cause problems with the overall pattern. I hope someone has some ideas, because I really like this sweater otherwise.

I love getting the look of a poncho but with the sleeves adding a bit of warmth. Also, the loose turtleneck is more like a cowl so it's very stylish. Not sure I could pull off all that yellow, but it is a very pretty shade.
