These instructions are incredibly vague, I eventually got frustrated and quit.

This pattern is 'not' difficult.

Make a test sample of broken rib in simple worsted to learn stitch pattern and gauge.

Love this pattern, now on second one. Sleeves are folded up to create cuffs.

Also, knitted in one piece - eliminated shoulder seam.

A three-ring binder with sample,measurements,notes, and attention to detail will help to achieve a good fit.

I really don't see how this is an classified as "easy+". I bouhgt this pattern (wish I had known it was available for free) because it said it was easy. I only had a week before my son's wedding when I learned the sweater I was planning on wearing wasn't going to work. I'm still hoping to finish it but the restates have made it a challenge. When I finally started placing markers everywhere and writing out a chert of rows to cross off I have been able to progress on it. Definitely not a beginner project!!!

Boy, am I glad that I was not the only one confused by this pattern! Now I don't feel quite as foolish as I did before. I thought that the broken rib stitch was based on a multiple of 2 stitches, plus one. Thus, with 18 stitches after Row 12, following the pattern closely gave me a result which began to look completely out of whack. I even paid for this pattern in a booklet I bought and now see it is free on this site! Guess I'll have to find something else to do with the 4 balls of Homespun. Too bad, because this is a very cute pattern!

i agree with the previous 2 who have knitted over 50 years i too have knitted i would say about 45 years or more and find this pattern very very confusing and the explanation very loosely described. ive knitted all types of garments from dresses, sweaters, vests, etc. ive knitted cable, intarsia, fair isle the works and never came across a pattern like this!

I am with those who had alot of difficulty trying to follow the pattern. I have knit for over 50 years and have given up after 3 tries. I too got stuck at row 14.

I made this last year and did not find it confusing but the stitch pattern was a bit frustrating. I have worn mine many, many times but fold the sleeves up several inches because I don't like the flair. My only disappointment was the length. It is several inches above my waist. Maybe something to do with my gauge.

I love this pattern except for the sleeves - too wide for me, so I reduced the diameter. Overhall I had no problems with the pattern but before I started it, I wrote out a list of the rows and what increases to make on which rows. I made the largest size for a friend and will probably make another one for myself.

I have been knitting obsessively for 2years and I also gave up on this pattern. I re-started it 5 times and decided to leave the pattern for a bit. I just came back to it after 4months and have decided that it's not worth the 7th re-start. :( It's too bad really because it looks so cute.
