I see the problem.  If you ignore the "skip next hdc" in row 2, you wind up adding 2 stitches.  Thus 28 hdcs on either side as of row 10.  I didn't catch that earlier. 

I say go ahead and try row 2 with skipping a stitch on both sides of the ch-2 space.  I don't know what the sweater is supposed to look like, but at least the math would add up, and it makes sense that they'd accidentally leave that part out.  But before doing this, I'd check the next part of the pattern to make sure that you really do need 27 hdcs on either side.  Sometimes they mess up the stitch counts. 

Wouldn't a chart be handy about now?   Smiley

thanks for the advice rina!
I did exactly that and I realized that the next part of the pattern would require 28 sts on each side....

so I wont decrease anything on the 2nd row and that will leave me with 28 sts each side by the 10th.


Whew..

thanks for the help!!!!

thanks....I think I might change it so that the sleeves are not quite so fitted and make it a full length....

I'm excited to finally get this show on the road!

thanks for all the help

I just sent an email to knit1
informing them about the inconsistencies

I'll post when I'm finished
