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. :)
