I'm thinking of knitting this up but I started reviewing the pattern and the numbers aren't making any sense to me for the back pattern? I've gone through old posts and no one has mentioned any problems--I'm thinking maybe my math is completely off --, can anyone point me in the right direction?The pattern reads as follows, my remarks/? in bold:

CO 102 sts
Work 12" st st
BO 4 sts at beg of next 2 rows So you'd be left with 94 sts, right?  {102-8=98}
Dec 1 st each side every 2nd row, 5 times--86 sts  ok here's the confusion--if I'm dec.1 st each side then is that 2 sts each side every other row? And if so then 2 x 5 is 10 sts that are to be dec. in total, which would give me 84 sts instead of the 86 as per pattern?

I looked on the errata page for Sn'B (http://www.knithappens.com/) and didn't come up with anything there. This is a link to the designer's homepage - she might be able to help http://www.freshbakedgoods.com/press14.php (I think this is her site) as there does seem to be a problem with the directions.

I did the math on the other sizes and they all compute. My suggestion (and take it for what it is worth) would be to decrease 1 stitch each side every 2nd row 4 times instead of five times since the other sizes are all multiples of two. I don't think that the differece of two stitches will make that big of a deal.

Hopefully someone else will comment on this and help out as well.

I sent an email to the above website you posted greenchick, so hopefully I'll get a response. Thanks!

ETA: LauraJean emailed me back to let me know that it is a typo, the number of stitches should be 84 (when doing the 37")

Looks like there's another error on the sleeves? I keep doing the math and my number is different from the patterns:
 CO 44 sts
 Inc 1 st each side every 6 rows 18x, then every 7th row 2x. (82 sts remain) --I'm getting 84 sts, is this going to be a problem since it will mean that later in the pattern my remaining sts will be 66 instead of the 64? I can't see 2 sts making a big difference but I'm wondering when seaming if thats where it will show?--

Bi 4 sts at beg if bext 2 rows, dec 1 st each side every 2nd row 5x. Bo rem 64 sts

This only thing that I can think of is that instead of increasing twice on each seventh row, do it just once. I did a quick calculation on the other sizes and they seem to be right. In the end, I really don't think that the two stitches will make much difference, but you never know. In all actuality, I would bet that the increase with the 7th rows should be only once.


PS - How is the sweater going, BTW? Can't wait to see pictures!

Thanks for all the advice greenchick! I'm sure your right and 2 sts won't make a difference, I'm just going ahead and doing it as the pattern states so I'll be left with the 66sts.

So far I've finished the back and I've now started the sleeves, I'm hoping to be finished by the end of august.  I'll post a photo of the cardigan once its finished.

This is so helpful! I'm just starting this project and so this kind of info is invaluable!

Knitting this cardigan was pretty quick, the finishing on the other hand took me a while longer. I used Estelle young touch cotton dk in rose for the body and Mission falls cotton in frost for the trim. So here it is, the end result:

(sorry about photo size, if anyone can help me make it smaller let me know)

Love it!  I know that the mohair edging put me off knitting it for a while, but to see it like that inspires me Smiley  Shame I have two jumpers to knit at the mo  Undecided Wink

I am so boring I think people should be interested in me.
