This pattern is both machine knit and hand knit. The instructions are both there, but are mixed together. Each knitting type is pointed out, i.e. Hand Knitting, Machine Knitting. However, even though it looks as though the instructions are there, they are not clearly defined once you begin the sleeves. The stitches arent complicated, but the way the pattern is written will make it difficult to follow if you arent able to tell the difference between each method.

Not sure where you're getting that information. There is 1 comment on the designers page asking for a hand knit version of the pattern and the designer states that she didn't get around to making a hand knit version but thinks people can do it themselves from the information provided for the machine pattern.

If you read through the pattern carefully, you will see where it says Machine knitting Hand knitting

I do see where she references hand knitting for comparison but when the designer actually said there is no hand knitting pattern, one usually presumes that the designer probably knows. I think if she intended her references to be a sweater pattern she'd have mentioned it, in her own comments.

Yes, I saw her comment as well, but it is possible more was added to the pattern after that comment was made. I am a designer, and I make changes, additions, and corrections often. I know most others do as well. The only way we will know for sure is if the designer weighs in on the conversation. I read the pattern through and if a person carefully mulls it over, it should be able to be knit by hand. It would definitely not be a task for a beginner to work through though.

This sweater is machine knit...not sure it is appropriate without making mention in the description. I didn't really see instructions for hand-knitting.

The sweater would be better seen if a lighter color yarn was used. In dark colors the details can't be seen. #bestideaever
