I was checking my Designer page on Ravelry the other day and lo and behold there was a whole new pattern added to it! I remember designing the sweater last summer but I had no idea the pattern had actually been published. What a surprise!  

Note that I said I remember designing the sweater. I can’t say I remember knitting it because, um, I didn’t, really. I knit it about as far as the armholes (it’s knit top down) then handed it off to my sainted mother who finished it up for me so as to save me from going stark raving insane (it was an overcommitted sort of summer). 

So here’s to my wonderful mother who was such a big help finishing this up, and here’s to the sunshine and green stuff: 

spring will be here eventually!

    I love this sweater, but am having trouble with the pattern instructions. The corrected chart for the Body Chart, Row9 has two yarn overs which increase the number of stitches in the row, but the stitch count in the chart does not change. Is there a K2 tog and an ssk missing? Also, the instructions do not include any info for placement or size of buttonholes other than the statement "discontinuing buttonhole sts after 6 holes have been made". Would appreciate any help you are willing to give.

    Hi Maris: I'm at a slight disadvantage as I don't have a copy of the published pattern nor did I see it during the tech editing stage so I have to refer to my original draft and to the chart published here: http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/errataSP11.php – which I assume is the same one you're looking at. But I may not have all the same information that you have.

    Anyway…
    Re: buttonholes: if you look closely at the chart you'll see that on Rows 1 & 11, two of the last three sts are ssk'd together. On the next row, you make 1 (M1). This creates a buttonhole. You make 6 of them then just knit those last four stitches on every row for the rest of the body.

    Re: row 9: You're right–there should be an ssk and a k2tog. I think if you work it as for Row 19, you should be fine.

    Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have other questions!

    Thank you, Sarah, I was trying to figure out what the ssk and the M1 in rows 1 & 2 were for! In the Abbreviations section in the back of the pattern book, the instructions for the make 1 have you knit through the back loop to twist the stitch and thus not make a hole. I will not twist the make 1 to make an open hole. Thank you very much for your prompt reply! 🙂
