Have the driver take a phone pic of the email on your screen ... that should do it, Mary.

That's a pretty little sweater, Weithree ... even prettier, were the two smaller cables on the front mirrored. :)

Thanks, jmcret, I stand corrected. But the directions still don't make sense to me. lol. One of my favourite sweaters to knit is the Owlet sweater by Kate Davies, which uses short rows to make the back of the neck. I have no problems whatsoever following her directions.

I was paying attention to the markers for the raglan sleeves and work the short rows between them but ... the count gets off, her directions throw me and I end up with crooked raglan lines. Frustrating. I also used sport yarn instead of two strands of a finer one.

GrumpGramma, in other patterns short rows make sense and are no problem. I agree with jmcret that it must originally have been written in another language .. and lost a lot in the translation. lol

Jessica-Jean, I guess I don't take a plain vanilla raglan and stick my own cables in it because I'm not brave enough. Just call me chickenssstuffing. Ah ha haaa. That sweater generator page was down when I tried to use it. I'll try it again.

JeanneE, good luck with your surgery!

vonknit, bless your heart. :)

Grandma Jo, thank you .. maybe I'll be brave enough to make my own cables one of these days. I really do loooove knitting cables, especially the Barrington Braid .. can't get enough of that!

Anyway, thank you all very much for trying to help and for all your comments ... I appreciate each and every one of you.

I might give this sweater another go, when I feel like tearing my hair out. :)

Has anyone made this sweater by Ann at Crazyhands? If so, I would love to hear how you managed it.

This sweater is so pretty and seems easy enough to knit but for the life of me, I cannot follow her directions, starting with the short rows at the back of the neck. Reading the pattern beforehand, the directions sound simple, no problem. The stitch counts are all off .. either that or I am. lol. I have tried four times to get this right and failed.

The line before you divide for sleeves, back and front reads: "Try to distribute turn markers between sleeve sts as even as possible. In my case it is 2nd, 6th, 9th and 11th sts." That makes no sense to me whatsoever, after following her marker placement in Row 6.

Another thing, where you would expect to find 'sm' for 'slip marker, she uses 'pm' for 'place marker' all the way through, which throws me. I changed them all to sm. One problem solved.

As far as I know, it is not on Ravelry .. so can't see anyone's comments there and the comments on the Crazyhands site don't help.

Oh, Deegle, you've done it again ... another lovely little sweater.

I have tried to knit your fancy stitch pattern, in the round, so many times but just can't make it turn out right. Ugh. I'll try it again when the air clears. lol

I would probably lose the turtleneck and make this one color.

Me too! :)

Trudeau would probably give him Cape Breton ... and throw in a few million bucks while he's at it.

I'd make him a pair of arms, too ... and a happier look on his face. lol
