  1. Dorothy Gregoire Says:

    Love this pattern but am wondering if there were any corrections.
    I’m having trouble with the neckline reading of the first round.It says a single crochet threw both loops of each stitch, then work 2 single crochets in each row.


  2. The pattern is actually correct, but I think I could have worded it a little better……when you sc around the neck, you will also be working some sc over the end rows that are dc’s……..so at this point, you work 2 sc over the post of the dc. I hope this makes sense. Let me know if you have any other questions.


  3. I’ve just started the cute sweater pattern. I’m not quite sure of the meaning of Round 3 and 4 in the directions for the back.

    Round 3 says to repeat Round 2 for “12 inches”…..but then Round 4 says “working across top of ribbing, work 40 sc”.

    Does this mean the 12 inch measurement should equal 40 stitches or does one increase or decrease as necessary to equal 40 stitches?

    Thanks, Laura


  4. Laura:
    Thank you for your interest in the sweater pattern-in working across the top of the ribbing, you’ll work 40 sc evenly, you may or may not have to skip a rib or add an extra sc to reach the 40 sc. I hope that helps. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
    Carol


  5. Hi……Me again!

    I’m now working on the first sleeve. Round 5 says to “switch to K hook, working in back loops in this and following rnds., dc in next sc”…….etc.

    Should this not say “sc in next sc”, so it will match the front and back ribbing?? (see Rnd. 5 for back ribbing).

    Thanks, Laura


  6. The ribbing for the sleeve is not as wide as the waistband ribbing, but you
    can do it that way if you like. Patterns are really only “suggestions” and
    you should feel free to add your own personal touches. The main thing is to
    have fun and love the finished product! Adding the extra row of sc will not be a
    problem in the length of the finished sleeve.

  7. Barbara Says:

    What kind of yarn are you useing? You know it never said. and being for a child, you can not make it to heavy. Thanks a lot as I would love to make this for my grandchild.


  8. I used Red Heart Super Saver for the model, but any 4 ply worsted weight will work. The larger hooks makes it light weight.

  11. sybil Says:

    I love the pattern , but I do find it very hard to understand…You never actually tell when you are changing colors of thread in the pattern….thank you


  12. Hi Sybil:
    I didn’t include the color changes so that everyone could do it the way they wanted to. As shown….the stripes are worked every 2 rnds. After working the main color, drop from hook, pick up color 2 and work for 2 rnds, then pick the main color up and work it for 2 rnds. This way there is no need to cut the different colors as you go. Hope this helps.

    Came across your site several times&like your patterns.
    Notice you live in my hometown(I no longer live there). But thought
    I would give a shout out and say hello.
    Renee


  14. Thanks Renee! A hearty hey from your ol’ neighbors!

  15. Renee Says:

    I lived in mio till I was 21,my family has been there since the late 30’s early 40’s.I go visit when I can,even though I only live 45 mins away. Anway my question is this I’m working on this sweater & I’m doing the size 10,to me it looks a little big for a child size 10.
    More like a teenager size or small adult. Am I doing something wrong? Because I’m following the pattern to a T.
    Thank-you so very much!


  16. Hi Renee…..we’re relative new comers……had a cabin (and I use that term loosely) for over 30 years and made the “year rnd” move when we retired, just north of the fancy new roadbridge, back by the dam.
    The chest on the size 10 should measure about 30″. The pattern is based on the size chart below. You could make it smaller by adjusting to a smaller hook size. Hope this helps.

  18. Renee Says:

    How do you feel about people asking to use your patterns to make
    Items to sale?


  19. No problem at all, I think it’s a great compliment. Feel free to sell any completed items. I completely support the “cottage industry”!

  20. Ashley Becker Says:

    I am starting on the sleeves and on the even rows you say to increase twice. Where should the increases be placed? should they be in the same places each time? thanks =)


  21. I usually work my increases in the 2nd dc and the 2nd to last dc, to keep them evenly placed, but it really doesnt matter. You can place them anywhere.


  22. I have two skeins of Homespun. Would you recommend this pattern for that yarn, and do you think a size 8 could be completed with just the 2 skeins?
    Much obliged.


  23. I think Homespun is a bulky wt. yarn…….so it could work. You may want to use the smaller size directions and the hook recommended for Homespun, this will work out in a larger gauge.
    I’m not real sure if 2 skeins will work. If it’s 5 oz. per skein, then you would be cutting it close. If you used a different yarn for the ribbing, then you may be able to complete it with the Homespun.
