  1. I have just completed this sweater, it was very quick and easy to do. I added a cable on the front, just to change it a little. :o)

  2. Yes, thank you very much! It took me a while to figure out what to seam together, but it worked out very well. Thanks again!

  3. Hi, I don’t know how long ago that question (about the last paragraph in the pattern) was posted, so I might be very late in answering, but anyway: to the best of my knowledge it means that you should slip all the stitches that you have saved on spare needles, back onto your “working” needle, in the following order – sleeve, back, sleeve, front – and then work 6 rows in rib, which will join all the pieces together at the top, whilst simultaneously forming the neck band. You will then need to seam it all together, joining the sleeve and side seams, plus the neckband seam, unless of course you work the neckband in the round (on a circular needle or dpns) in which case you will get a circular neck band with no need to seam, but you would still have to seam up the rest of the sweater. I don’t know if I’ve explained that clearly or not… hope it was some help! -x-

  4. I’m perplexed by the last paragraph. Could someone explain?
