Never mind my question! I saw this Gauge1 stitches, 2 rows, 3 inches. stockinette stitch and stopped cold!! I should have read further.

Oats and Honeycomb Cabled pattern- would someone please explain the gauge for this pattern? I don't understand it.

Oats and Honeycomb cabled pattern seems to have many mistakes. Is there a corrected version of this pattern?

Hello winterraines1954 5 154981, the original version of this pattern can be found here: http://www.yarnspirations.com/patterns/honeycomb-aran.html?id=198229. If you still have questions, we suggest directly contacting the designer of the pattern via their website. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I cannot get past the first row on this pattern. I am trying to knit the first size and each time I end up with six extra stitches on the first row. Any know what I am missing.

Hi joancooney41 29018 03, my general rule for a complex pattern like this is to go slowly and to work for periods where you aren't interrupted, if possible. I'm a visual person so I print out the pattern and mark off each part as I work through it. This helps make sure I end up with the correct number of stitches, plus keeps my place for when the phone rings or I have to stop.

Hi- I'm stuck on this Oats Honeycomb pattern. I've done the ribbing and the first 2 rows but this is where I'm stuck. Where do I go from here? Directions say that these two rows form the pattern. But for me to work the 1st row again I don't have enough stitches. But if I go to the 3rd row on Pat A is that what I do across the entire group of stitches and follow the row 3 and so on? Or, do I use row 1 and replace it with row 3? I'm really confused as to where to go next. Can someone please help me. I love this pattern just not sure where to go next. Thanks.

I am not that far yet, but I did do it on paper, on row 3 I use row 3 of PATA, row 3 of PATB and row 3 of PATC...the other stiches I use the same as row 1. However I had to rework the whole back because those rows did not have enough stiches. Not sure what it will look like but I am giving it a try.

hi I tried to knit this and found the instructions a bit difficult to understand, I wanted to make the xs one but every time I changed to the larger needles I couldn't get to the end of the row on the needles but came to the end of the row on the pattern what am I doing wrong???

very much want to knit this for the two older girls - hope the patterns for small are right but shall be careful knitting and see what happens

I am so pleased to have found this pattern again. I first knitted this jumper (or VERY similar) 54 years ago. The first time I wore it, I had a crash on my motor-bike and tore the arms and back out of it!! It was irreparable! I was devastated but always meant to knit it again but lost the pattern. I am a little concerned that some comments allude to mistakes - I the pattern I printed today the corrected version? I can't wait to knit this for my daughter. Thank you so much

Since so many of you have asked for my spreadsheet, I thought I'd show how the last one of these sweaters turned out. I gave it to my g'daughter for Christmas and she was thrilled. Green is her favorite color and I think it turned out pretty well.

Libra, this is gorgeous. Green is also my favorite color and I like the shade you chose. What type of yarn did you use (Patons Classic Wool or different) and how long did it take you to make the sweater? Did you make them in different colors, and if so, what color do you think showed the stitches the best? I'm not nearly skilled enough to knit this, but I am keeping the pattern as it is a classic and something to look forward to. Thanks for sharing your photo!

Hi Libra - I wonder if you could tell me where to go after the first two rows. I'm stuck. I know I should go to row 3 but do you follow those same stitches across for that pattern? Shouldn't there be other stitches besides those to form the pattern? I've never been so lost. I used to knit all the time but haven't in many years. So if you can guide be as to where I go from here I'd appreciate it. Thanks, Barbara P.S. I love your sweater. Thanks for putting it up for all to see. You must be so proud.

Morning Libra please could you email me your spreadsheet? My email address is sherylp@ellipsys.co.za

Hi Libra, I've finished the front and back, but I just can't get the increases on the sleeves right. could you please share your spreadsheet with me? gdyte25@yahoo.com Thank you for your help. Spreadsheet was the only way I could get the pattern in my head for the front/back. )

Definitely something that I'm going to knit once I'm more experienced. I love the color and the classic look. Exactly what a knit sweater should be )

It is a beautiful sweater, but check the pattern before you try it. You will have to adjust it as it is incorrect.

Libra3024 - can you tell me where it is ''incorrect''. I just started making it , please send response to kurczekjc@yahoo.com Tks in advance.

Hi did you ever received a response from Libra? I curious because I need help also. I'm stuck after the first two rows. I just might have to try something else. Don't want to. Love this pattern.

Well, I've figured out that I can't upload a spreadsheet here. If anyone still wants it, I can email it to you. My email is Libra3024@aol.com In the subject line, include 'sweater inst' I've made two of them from the spreadsheet and they really are beautiful.

I have sent request for ''sweater inst'' to your email. Tks, still waiting for reply D

Hi Libra Is there any chance that you could send me the spreadsheet - I too am an experienced daughter and thought I was going to go crazy until I found this review page. My email is wlackey@cogeco.ca. Many thanks in advance

Is anyone still following my corrections for this pattern? Have figured out the arithmetic for back armhole decreases. If anyone wants them, let me know, and I will post them.

This is the second pattern in the last two weeks I have attempted that was written incorrectly. I am very disappointed in having to keep rewriting patterns in order to complete a project. That being said, I am hoping I have hit upon a simple solution for this particular pattern! Wish me luck! The sweater is beautiful, but having the first pattern row come out off count is off putting!!

The 6 extra stitches should be in between the two repeats of pattern A at the end of the RS row. Rather than rip it all out again and very likely changing to a different pattern altogether, I used these stitches at either end for a selvedge edge and left the pattern as two consecutive cables. At the very least, this makes this sweater uniquely mine and saved me time and aggravation in the long run. Sad that the patterns apparently test knit and corrected prior to publication!!

And it does not get better! You can follow my successive posts as I worked my way through this pattern. You need them all, I'm afraid. Will post the back armhole decreases if anyone still wants them.

I'm just now starting this and would like all the hints/help I can get D I have seen 2 corrections you have posted are there any more? I'm trying to get the ''spreadsheet'' that was offered but haven't heard from her yet. Tks in advance. (kurczekjc@yahoo.com)

Im pretty sick right now. Spent an entire evening knitting 3 inches of 1X1 twisted rib over 129 stitches only to find row 1 in XL is incorrect. I have 11 extra stitches! If that isn't a project ender right there, what is? Wish i had read these comments before i began a wasted night of knitting!

Pattern B 2nd row (WS) Row 6 only K2. P1. K1. P1. K1. P1. K1. P1. K1. P1. K2

Thanks for all your help with the corrections. Have you got to the sleeve yet? Would welcome those corrections. Still working on the back.

Sorry, still working on the back. Spent two weeks with an active four-year-old! But the second row of the sleeve pattern also has the "extra" stitches at the end of each pattern instead of at the beginning.

And let me know if you need my changes for the armhole decreases, if you have not figured them out for yourself.

This is on Ravelry! http//www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/honeycomb-a == ran

Yes, but it's the same deeply flawed one I have been giving corrections for.

Have just taken a look at the sleeve instructions--same problems. Will post corrections when I get there.

Another erratum Pattern B 1st row (RS) P1.TW2R. P2 2nd row (WS) K2. P2. K1. Note to Cathy your gauge may be quite different.

Thanks

What does this replace?

I know I'm crazy, but I am going to knit this in the round.

Did you complete this ''in the round''? I'm wondering how it was to work it that way D

Is this on ravelry? I couldn't find it.

Probably not because the pattern is too badly written. Most people seem to have given up.

New erratum after the first complete pattern, one must start the second and subsequent ones, at row 3. Still doing the back.

Is this for all sizes?

Yes, because otherwise 2nd and subsequent rows 1 and 2 will duplicate rows 17 and 18.

Have corrected the pattern for the smallest size as follows 1st row (RS) P1. P4. (1st row A. P2. Tw2R. P2.) x 2 (29 sts) 1st row B. P2. Tw2R. P1. (18 sts) 1st row C. P1. Tw2R. P2. (39 sts). 1st row B. P1. Tw2R. P2. (18 sts) (1st row A. P2. Tw2R. P2) x 2. P4. P1. 2nd row (WS) K1. K4. (K2. P2. K2. 2nd row A) x 2 K1. P2. K2. 2nd row B K2. P2. K1. 2nd row C K2. P2. K1. 2nd row B (K2. P2. K2. 2nd row A) x 2. K4. K1. Have started only the back, and am using 133 sts.

How would that apply to a size "L" D

Would love this sweater in a button through jacket??

I know it is a bit late for a reply, but there is a pattern called "Cozy Cable" sweater on this website that is a gorgeous cardigan similar in pattern to this pullover. You can enter it in the search bar or look in the pattern index on the left side of screen for the cardigan. It's not exactly a jacket, but it is button front.

I love this sweater and am making it, but find the instructions confusing. As others have commented, the number of stitches aren't always correct. I finally made a chart on excel, fixing the pattern, and this has worked out well. I also am an experienced knitter. Rating for the sweater would be a 5 but I rated the pattern.

Hi Libra3024, could you share the excel spreadsheet. I am having the same issue of 6 stitches left on the needle when I follow the pattern. The pattern is quite confusing. I am an intermediate knitter and have frogged my pattern a few times already.

I'm trying to figure out how the heck to share the spreadsheet. I'll try to attach the whole thing. It won't let me share the spreadsheet.

Is it possible for you to share your excel spreadsheet? Am an experienced knitter for quite computer illiterate for excel and spreadsheets. Thank you

Libra3024 I would love to see your spreadsheet before I try making this sweater!

I noticed this issue on instructions BACK , 1st row, line six doing the A pattern. It seems to me that it is six stitches short. I would think the A pattern on one side of the sweater would be the same as the other side. It is not written that way and is six stitches short. Have others found this so and how have they fixed it. A sucessessful spreadsheet would be great if someone can send it to me as I am just starting.

I noticed this on the back too, but found that 1st row, line six is six stitches too many. I am knitting the medium size. Where it says P2. TW2R. P4 (2-2-2-4-2). I am knitting P2. TW2R. P4 (1-2-2-4-2). This looks better and reduces it by 6 to give me the proper stitch count. I charted it out on graph paper.

This sweater is so beautiful but I don't want to attempt it without corrections that you have figured out. Would really appreciate it if you could share your spreadsheet. Thanks so very much.

Hi Libra, Would you possibly share your spreadsheet? I'm an experienced knitter w/ the cable design am very frustrated as I cannot get the pattern to work out. Thanks!

I would love a copy of the spread sheet too. This pattern is very confusing and I would consider my self an advanced knitter.

as with alot of others, wish I had read the comments before I started this. I am an experienced knitter too, but was really not in the mood to pull out the charting paper. Anyone willing to share theirs? Otherwise I am just going to pull another basic sweater pattern and chart my own stitches from scratch.

I apologize. I haven't been on here for a while. But yes, I can share the spreadsheet but need to add a few notes to it. I understand it but doubt if anyone else would. I've made one or two little changes. I like to keep two stitches at the beginning and end of each row in stockinette stitch. It makes a much more pleasing seam. Give me a day or two to work on the spreadsheet so someone besides me would understand it and I'll post it.

Too many stitches for the pattern. Tried to adjust but in the end gave up and found another pattern elsewhere. I'm a very experienced knitter

There seems to be six stitches left over making the smallest size!
