Hey, everyone! I got a response from Ashley today.

Thank you Kat! (and Ashley). That does make it a lot clearer.

I'm hoping to get mine done by the end of the weekend, too. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's FOs.

Alright, everyone, I have completed the Left Front panel and it's a lot easier once you work the pattern in the manner Ashley described in the e-mail she sent me. I'll explain how I did it.

Work row 16 of the neckline decrease chart (purl all the way across).
Next row (RS row) knit 1 and then go directly into the pattern repeat for row 17. Work the pattern repeat until you have three stitches left on the left needle. Knit 2 together and then knit 1. You should have 21 stitches left on the needle. Just keep doing this, alternating between the pattern repeats (there are two different pattern repeat rows - one beginning with a YO, the other a SSK) and stopping the pattern repeat three stitches shy of the end of each RS row. Since k2tog is a right-leaning decrease that is what did on the left side. Now that I'm working the right front panel, I'm using the ssk decrease since it is a left-leaning decrease.

So just decrease on every RS row, not every other?

I still understand it as decreasing on every other RS row. That's what I did on mine, and it seems to look right. I'm just a few rows away from finishing the back. When I'm there, I'll post progress pics.

I'm not quite understanding all of the talk about the decreases but I'm sure I'll be glad to have that info when I get there. Thanks for sharing! I'm still lacing the bottom. Slow going with a 2yo and a DH working on his Ph.D. Need more knitting time!

I actually worked one decrease one stitch before the neckline edge every RS row. I finished the body part of the sweater last night and it fit me perfectly. I finished one sleeve today. I actually did something a bit different for the sleeves. Instead of working it from the cuff up I worked it underarm down. Since I have lovely "batwing" upper arms but smaller forearms I CO 39 stitches and did a few inches in the lace pattern and then did a mirror decrease until I had 31 stitches. I worked that until I got about halfway down the forearm, did six rows in 1x1 ribbing and then worked a mirror increase back to 39 stitches to make bell sleeves at the cuff. Then I used the Picot BO for the cuff hem. It looks really pretty and fits perfectly so I'm glad my slight deviation worked out. I'm hoping to finish the other sleeve tomorrow and get everything sewn together so I can post pics.  Grin

And you are happy with your yarn choice Kat Autumn?

I'm using the Tweedle Dee too and am having serious doubts about a lace sweater in bulky wool(like) yarn.  I'm only at the ribbing so don't have enough done to really tell if I am okay with it or not....

Ooooh, KatAutumn, I can't wait for pictures! You will motivate me to plow through. I should finish the lace bottom tomorrow and start the ribbing I hope!

The only regret I have about using a variegated yarn is that it really doesn't do the lace pattern justice. As far as it being a bulky weight, it's not so bad on the body of the sweater; however, on the sleeves it is a bit heavy so I'm thinking this is going to be more of a winter sweater than a fall one (at least here in Georgia where it's still in the eighties). Also, when I worked the mattress stitch along the sleeve hem it's a bit thick, which I'm not thrilled with. Fortunately it isn't very noticeable, as it's under the arm and it isn't uncomfortable.
