Just found the perfect yarn for this sweater - and on sale at a ridiculous price. The first time I knit this one it was as a gift and this time it will be a gift again -- who deserves a present more than the knitter? The yarn is a wheat colour and just begs to be knit into this sweater

this is such a sophisticated and feminine sweater when finished, yet worn with denim skirt, even jeans it becomes casual and feminine - I used wooden needles to knit it as the metal ones are slippery with even wools at the best of times had no trouble following the link to the pattern either

A beautiful sweater made with a very yummy silk ribbon yarn. Its a fairly simply pattern and should be fun to knit. Silk is sometimes a bit slippery and I find I have to watch out for dropped stitches. I would definitely use wood or bamboo needles instead of metal needles to knit this one.

this is such a lovely sweater -- and easy to find if you are not used to using all free knitting, just click on the link and it will take you to Purl Soho where the directions are - then away you go some of us have been here often and are accustomed to the links and quirks, but no reason to suggest anyone else is lazy or stupid

When the link didn't take me directly ... I did a search at the site that came up for 'Silken Straw Summer Sweater' and it took me right to the pattern. Hope that helps someone else ..

I cannot get the "FREE" pattern (Silken straw summer sweater) from this link. It only takes you to another website -- the Purl Bee and presently, I don't want those patterns!!!

use the purl bee search bar- the links work if you are not too stupid or lazy to type in the the name of the pattern you want.

purl bee link works fine if you are not too stupid or lazy to put the name of the pattern into the search bar.

I copy patterns like that but I also do a print screen for the picture and crop it in my paint program. All I do then is to insert the picture into Word before copying and pasting the instructions.

I'd like this as a beach cover-up but not sure I have the patience to work with fine gauge yarn. On another note, I copy patterns into a Word Doc whenever possible so I can change the font size or line spacing to follow more easily. It helps to save as plain text, or the web formatting can make those parts frustrating. I also edit the size changes, leaving only the instructions for the size I'm making.

A garment as light as a spider's cobweb - would be wonderful but with cats in the near vicinity of my knitting, there would be trouble. This would be a perfect top for someone with a sunburn, barely-there clothing.

You can copy the picture and insert it into your Word document. Right click on the picture, select "copy" command, then click into your Word document, right click and select the "paste" command. Be patient, it may take a little time for the paste to load, but it does. Volia!

I am trying to print this pattern - no luck

Highlight it, copy it and paste it onto a Word document. The pictures won't show up, but you can bookmark the page to go back and look at them, if you want.
