I don't use patts which are Text Only - far too confusing and it really slows down my knitting.

I'm ready to begin this classic patt and am so disappointed to find it only in this format.

I've made this sweater and it's pretty simple. After the first few pattern rows were established, I didn't need to follow the written pattern as it's continuous repeats over 4 rows.

Thanks so much for sharing this pattern. I've printed it off and hope to make it this year sometime.

Thank you everyone for your responses. I will order the correct yarn to make this sweater. Good thing I only got to the first rows of the panel before I had the issue of what skpo meant. Happy Knitting!!!!

Sorry, Carol, but your sweater will wind up in the world of "hope it's the same weight as called for" with all the other projects where hope did not result in a garment that fits.

Patons Lace Sequin is a sport weight #2 yarn and the yarn called for in the pattern, King Cole Galaxy DK, is a #3 yarn. Working with a smaller diameter yarn than recommended will result in a sweater that is too small unless you add stitches to compensate for the difference in yarn weight. Adding stitches means you will have to adjust the patterned stitches throughout.

You can either do a lot of math if that is your forte, or you can choose a different yarn/pattern combination. Whatever your decision, a gauge swatch should be your first step toward a successful outcome.

What about making a larger size than what I wear? I normally make mediums but in this case I could make the large. Would that work?

Thank you GrumpyGramma, but I found the description for it right after I posted for help. Go figure, LOL!

Slip one, Knit one, pass slipped stitch over knitted stitch?

Thank you so much LibertyRose. Right after I posted, I found the abbreviation so I edited this post so I don't get a lot of responses for it.

I'm starting this sweater and hope to have it done by next Christmas. Have any of you made this one?

I'm using Patons Lace Sequin and hope it's the same weight as called for in the pattern which is King Cole Galaxy DK. I'll check back when I get further along.

Please tell me when it became illegal to seek asylum in the US.

They need a legitimate reason to seek asylum, and prove that reason, not seek it just because they feel like it. Come into the USA the right way and we will welcome you. Come across the border illegally and we will send you back to where you came from. We do have laws regardless of what you may think!

Scroll down to Pattern Instructions and you'll see the Pattern button. Click it and you can print the pattern from there.

My husband had that surgery 3 years ago and it's not something that has a quick recovery. He spent 23 days in the hospital. As a result, he now has pancreatitis.

There is a group on Facebook if you have access, (Whipple Surgery Survivor Group) that talks about their experiences with Whipple surgeries. I pray that yours goes smoothly and you have lots of help as you will not be able to lift anything at all over 5lbs for quite a while.

I had a purple corduroy bib skirt like the orange one in the picture. I actually made it myself as a young teen. Loved to sew on my mom's old pedal Singer sewing machine. My niece has that now.

Wish I could, but I will be at work

Me too! In another couple of years, I'll be able to join some of these groups in the afternoon, but for now, if I wanna eat, I gotta work! Or, should that be, If I wanna knit and buy yarn, I gotta work! Someone has to support my habits, LOL!
