I love the pattern overall, but it has a few mistakes.

I agree that it hangs up in back and low in front. I used LB Homespun and found that the ends frayed. It was hard to sew in the ends. The yarn was very soft to use. the bobbles hide little mistakes.

I like this pattern, but I think there is a mistake.
On the Left-Front instructions it says:
Next (Buttonhole) Row: K6 (for buttonband), p to end of row, casting on 2 sts over bound off sts of previous row.
Continue as established, keeping 6 sts in Garter st for buttonband and rem sts in St st, and continuing to work a buttonhole opposite each marker, until piece measures same as Right Front to armhole, end with a RS row.

I think the final row of the part up to the armhole should be a wrong side row.

Nice, easy sweater and mimics a Lands End sweater my husband loves. So I will use a zipper instead of buttons. One thing I think should be a correction is to use a smaller needle for the ribbing on the bottom and sleeve cuffs. Just too floppy when made with the same size needles as the body.

I really like the classic look of this cardigan. However, I hope this pattern is in the making for a top down cardigan. I really like the use of Homespun yarn.
Thanks, Marilyn Neis

I made this one and found, too, that it was tight under the arms. It also hung 'up' in back and 'down' in front until adjusted. I put pockets on and 8 buttons on. He loved it!

Re: Leona Cortis review. Thank you for your review. Can you explain how the triangle under the arms works? I made this for my husband and it is snug across the chest-upper arms area.

This style jacket looks really nice and classical. It would be really nice if you could design this in one piece on circular needles from the top-down. Also, the neckline seems to lie too low on the neck making the collar inefficient for keeping the neck warm. If you could adjust for these problems, I think I'd love to make it. Anita

This knits up beautifully and my son loves it. I put a zip up the front instead of buttons and it looks very good.

I made the XL due to the height of the male being over 6 feet. I did make a small triangle piece to fit under the arms because I felt it was going to be too snug. Had the male lived nearby I would have been able to shorten the length in the sleeves. On the whole it fit fairly well.
