pattern but the designer and I parted ways after the yoke! I rewrote the directions for myself so it will be streamlined for all future sweaters I knit!
(The directions call for knitting the left front and binding off, then the back and binding it off, then the other front and binding that off and then each sleeve and seaming it all back together. That is so counter intuitive to anyone who has been knitting more than a week...........sorry. Ahem, that didn't seem to be efficient to me, so I put the sleeve stitches on hold as I came to them, cast on the underarm stitches, continued around and then repeated for the other sleeve. Now , all the stitches for the body were on the needles and the sleeve stitches were on waste yarn to be finished in the last. And lickety split , I had a sweater done and no seaming required! What a cute sweater and now the directions match the idea!
