Flattering Sweater Reviewed by Glenda Prince on 2011-11-16 ****
Well I just started this sweater and I think that the instructions are pretty clear. I've been knitting for more than 30 years and am a Knitting Instructor.
Its a lovely pattern and I may do it again and again because of the simplicity.
For the other reviewer, most knitting patterns are listed exactly the way this is...maybe you should have someone with more experience help you with it.

Flattering Sweater Reviewed by Amanda on 2011-11-02 *
Most of the instructions are too confusing. Having to end with a wrong side row means that you finish a wrong side row and stop.

It's confusing also when you see that you need to put six stitches on a holder, which specifies "first" or "last," it should be specified that it's for the neckline.

Some of the bracketing is confusing as well. (k1,p1)twice is fine, but
"Sl 1, (k 1, p 1) twice, p 2 (3, 0), [k 5, p 3] to last 12 sts, k 5, p 2 (3, 0), (p1, k1) twice, p1"
is easier read
"Sl 1, 2(k2, p1), p[2,3,0], *(k5, p3)* to last 12sts, k5, p[2,3,0], 2(p1, k1), p1."

Also, when doing the front pieces, the second one, it says to "Work as for Left Front, reversing all shaping," well, reversing means to just do it backwards, from right to left, starting with the last stitch, working towards the first in the instructions.
