Knit Coastal Stripe Pullover Reviewed by Meg Olhasque on 2011-05-24 ****
I'm giving this one four stars as the schematics are not proportional and would be confusing to a beginning knitter - the front and back should be oblong, not square.
Personally, I think it's a great pattern, and as long as the right gauge is obtained should serve as a canvas for myriad variations. As another reviewer commented, I think I'll probably add an inch to the front and back for balance. Should be a quick weekend project for the intermediate to advanced knitter.

I'm a beginner knitter and have always made straight items like scarfs and afghans, but wanted to try making a sweater. This pattern seemed like a good one to teach myself how to increase and learn about sewing pieces together. I made it for my grandson. I had to go down a needle size to size 6. And even after checking the gauge, the sweater is much too big and much too short. The sleeves are way too wide as well as the width of the front and back. It is a very disproportionate sweater and I am disappointed that my first knitted wearable is totally unwearable! I will think twice before using a "free" pattern.

Knit up quick and looks great. Also soft and comfy for the little one wearing it. I ended up making two. One for my son in the colours suggested and one where the main colour is pink for my daughter. Both turned out well.

Great colors. I made it for my cousin's one year old. It came out a little bit short, but other than that - great pattern! Looks like a sweater from GAP or J. Crew.

I made this for my new niece - in a more girly color scheme - and it came out very nicely. Easy to follow and quick to finish.

The project was easy and I'm pleased with the results, however I had to use a #4 needle to achieve the gauge. I'm used to going one or two needle sizes smaller, since I'm a tight knitter, but I don't think I've ever had to go down three needle sizes. Also, I made the 18 month size for my grandson and the completed project was the right measurement, however it looks so large! I'm hoping for the best once we try it on.

Lovely pattern. Simple to do yet looks quite good when finished. I made it for my grandson in the colors shown and it is adorable.

It's easy to make....I just thought it was a bit short in length....I think the next I make the pattern I will add length...other than that issue...great sweater, and will make it again.. Becky 6/23/08
