I really like this patter. For one thing it is knit top down and it is a basic sweater. Living in NY I really appreciate sweaters. You never can predict the weather and a simple top like this comes handy. The instructions are straightforward. I had to look over the instructions again to see that MM was. LOL it is the main marker. And it does help to have markers in different colors. I learned that from knitting socks. I have the perfect yarn for this. Thank you for the free pattern.

I can't say chunky anything would be appropriate in my part of the world for summer-I will keep this in mind for a fall knit.

I agree, never heard of 1X-40" bust and DK is better. I find worsted-weight cotton a bit heavy for spring, however it depends on where you live. I can't post anything without doing a rating. My ratings are then not fair as I haven't made it.

actually you can post without rating it, there's an option underneath the stars with a box, if you check the box it rates it " I have not made this yet so i cannot rate it." hope this helps.

Great sweater although the sizes are weird...1X=40" bust. Alpaca & wool are not really a spring type yarn....DK or worsted-weight cotton works better for spring wear.
