  4. I love your patterns, the name of your blog and I am so grateful that you share your patterns for free. Row 4 of the pants should be continue from *to * across right? Also, I think it works better is at the end of rows 6-13 if you sl in the top of the ch 3, and then sl again in the shell, just my opinion. Going from row 4 into row 5 did not work quite right for me either, may sl in top of ch 3 rather than around ch 3? I have never designed a pattern in my life, so I am definitely not trying to be critical. Thanks again!

  10. I have just finished the main body of the sweater and edging and love it! However, I am having a problem on how to join the sleeves. Could you explain it differently than in the instructions or do you perhaps have a Youtube video of how it is done. Thank you so much.

  16. I am also having the same issue with Row 7 therefore it's making the rest of the sweater in limbo because I don't know what to do. Do you have any suggestions?
