I am another one who can hardly wait to get at this one... and the idea of leaving the bottom plain is an interesting one gives one two patterns, a chance to make two similar sweaters but not identical - cool idea

This looks divine! I would almost leave the bottom plain. Can't wait to make this pattern!

Where do I start? The only cast on number I see is the Yoke cable then somehow I have to pick up 200 stiches!

I did finish this sweater and lover the finished product. It is only my second sweater and the cast on under the arms threw me at first but it worked out as written. I just had to wrap my head around it.

Unfortunately I have no idea how to knit with a circular needle. Is this pattern available with 2 needles.?

Confused the area after the cast on 6 stitches. I have 2 marked area and do not know how I can get to decreasing 20 stitches as the instructions describe. See instructions under Body Sizes XS/S,M and L only Knit in rnds for 2 ins (5cm)...

On the sleeves instructions there's this line "With RS of work facing slip 56 (62-66-74-80-86) sts from spare yarn onto three larger double pointed needles. Cast on 6 (6-8-16-20-26) sts." To get a stockinette stitch on the sleeves (the same as the body) shouldn't I start knitting with the WS of the body facing? (RS outside, WS inside)

I started this project and I have a question. In the sleeves instructions there's this line "With RS of work facing slip 56 (62-66-74-80-86) sts from spare yarn onto three larger double pointed needles. Cast on 6 (6-8-16-20-26) sts." To get a stockinette stitch on the sleeves (the same as the body) shouldn,t I work knitting in round and starting with the WS of the body facing (not the RS)?

I am having a heck of a time with this pattern. There is a mistake in row 3 and 10 on the cable pattern. Finally got past that now struggling with the increases on the bottom. I haven't given up yet.

did you ever finish this sweater? what were the mistakes you found in the cable pattern? I'm just starting it hope to be fore-warned. Thanks!
