I only have a sleeve left to go!!!!!  I bought these awesome glass buttons on etsy that match my green.  They're not crazy, but I think they'll fit really well.

Hopefully I have it done before I move in a week!

Welcome Neon!  Unfortunately I didn't write anything out; I prefer the "wing it and frog" method.  Lol.  Basically you will just do everything backwards from what you did on the right side.  Pretend it is opposite day.

You should hurry up and make your required minimum posts so you can show us some WIP pics!

I just started mine! I'm doing it in navy blue wool-ease.  I'm determined to actually finish this- I have a bad habit of starting sweaters and never finishing.

Finished!  And with a picture!  The color is pretty accurate in the picture.  Other than that, well, it's a terrible picture, but at least you can see the sweater.  I ended up knitting it out of Wool-Ease on size 10 needles, which knitted up right on the mark gauge-wise in terms of width, but ended up knitting a bit longer than gauge.  I appreciate the extra length in the body, but ended up shortening the sleeves by a few rows (they're still really long!).  I love this sweater.  Too bad it's summer and I have to wait a few months to wear it. Sad

Looks great Mabills!!  Love the pink - that is one of my favorite shades in the wool-ease.

Neon, this may or may not be helpful, but I tried to "translate" the pattern from right to left for you:

LEFT FRONT-
 
CO 35 sts.
1-3: knit all 35 stitches
4: purl to last three stitches, knit those
5: knit all
6: purl to last 3 stitches, knit
7: knit all
8: purl to last 3 stitches, knit those (no buttonholes on this side ignore the k2tog & yo instructions from right side)
9-15: odd rows knit all, even rows purl to last3 stitches then knit those
16-32: work in twisted rib, keeping your garter stitch border on right side (row 16 is wrong side, so you dont twist until row 17)
33-38: work stockinette with garter border
(***** note: make sure this matches up to your right side, the pattern actually calls for rows 16-38 in twisted rib, but I started the stockinette early to make it match my 17 rows of twisted rib on the back.  Just do whatever you did to match your right side, then start your scoop neck decreases)

Scoop neck decreases: (continue in stockinette with garter stitch border)
Dec 1 st next to buttonhole band on each of the next 5 rows.
Dec 1 st next to buttonhole band every other row 6 times. (interpret however you did on right side)
Wrk 3 rows in St st.
Dec 1 st next to buttonhole band on this next row.
Wrk even in St st for 25 rows.
BO 4 st at the end of this next row.

Armhole shaping:
Wrk armhole shaping as for back, except only on edge opposite to buttonhole band.
Wrk even in St st for 23 rows.
BO 13 sts.

Good luck!  If you have any specific questions about what you are having trouble with, let us know!
