since you are knitting in the round...there really is no right to left as far as your work is concerned...also, her chart is symmetrical...so you can't lose!  ;)since she put the numbers on the right, i read it right to left. so for the first round you are knitting of the lace, knit all the way around, then for round 2, you'll start in that first box on the right next to the #2.
good luck!

Okay, another question... so when I looked at the pattern before I bought it, I was looking at the two versions (long and short sleeved) and maybe I'm crazy, but the short-sleeved version looks like the neckline is not nearly as deep as the long-sleeved.  When I saw the pictures, I thought maybe there were two different options for the neckline, and I thought I'd knit the body of the short sleeved sweater and then the sleeves of the long-sleeved sweater.  But now I have the pattern and I see that there is supposedly no difference.  What's up with this?  Could she be wearing two different sizes?  I'm confused.

I think she's wearing two different sizes...there's no way that the sleeve lacing could be that low unless the size she was wearing was much bigger than the first. Of course that's just my  $0.02. The way the sweater fits on me, only the top of my cleavage would be exposed, a little risque without something under it but not too bad.

that green one HAS to be a WAY bigger size, it's HUGE on her, just look close at the underarms, length, and neck. No way thats the same size as the brown/red one.

Dude, that's stupid, why would they put another size on the model?  That's just misleading.  I'm irritated now...

Oh, that does kinda suck... but I do still like the sweater enough to make it. Anyone planning on trying to figure out how to give the sweater the look of the second one without having to knit it too large?

I finished the lace bit on the body! Here are some pictures of it actually on me (to give you a better idea of how it looks without the ridges). I think it definitely removes a lot of the bulk of the sweater. I'm knitting the smallest size, and it is working out perfectly  Cheesy





I also thought of another few slight modifications I"m doing.

1) I'm only doing wasit shaping at the sides and eliminating the darts, and increasing less frequently. When I knit it up the first time, I thought it was too flare-ey and not very form fitting.

2) Increasing for the sleeves starting at the elbows rather than right at the end of the lace, and increasing less frequently. I am a small lady, so smaller, daintier things look better on me.

3) Possible crochet or picot edging at the neck? I haven't decided on this one yet.

That looks wonderful.  I have to take some notes from you, I'm pretty small as well and don't want it to be too un-fitted.

nah, I think I am just going to let the edges curl, and maybe add a row of single crochet to add stability. Smiley
