I posted pictures of a cardie I knitted for GD no.2 a few weeks ago, after having significant problems. I have just finished the cardie for GD no.1, which has come out okay. It took quite a bit of time , due to the pattern complexity (but no mistakes), and I nearly ran out of wool, but all is well. The pattern doesn't cater for pockets - but she wanted pockets. Fortunately she told me this when the fronts were a few inches long, so I was able to accommodate these easily.

The pattern was a very concise one, the whole thing covering less than two sides of A4. Instructions such as:-

-when sleeve measures (46)... shape sleeve top by casting off (3,2,2)...sts in both sides every alternate row, then 1 st (9)... times, and finally 2,2,2,2,3,3,2,4 sts. Cast off remaining 12() sts.

I found this much easier than reams of line-by-line instructions, where, in the past, I have missed out complete lines in error.

Just hope it fits now :)

It looks great; I love cardigans. What’s the source of the pattern?

Looks lovely.
Like you I prefer patterns written that way. Hate the ones written row by row when no change in what you are doing. And often I don't do those patterns. But others hate this and like it spelt out row by row.
Shows why we need to allow designers to write the patterns as they like and just accept that we might not do some patterns as we don't like the way they are written. No way can one designer be expected to record each pattern in numerous ways to suit everybody (and even more so if they are offering them for free).

That's a super cardi and gorgeous colour and stitch pattern. I totally agree about pattern instructions, I have several times seen patterns I would like but if the instructions are more than 3 or 4 pages I'm not interested.
