Erratatatatum

In the Knit In Chunks pattern, it has been graciously pointed out to me there are a few errors that could cause some amount of frustration and unnecessary brain exertion.

Some errors could be my interpretation of how a knitting pattern should be instructed, since I don't have much experience with patterns please note I get creative. Some errors could be simple transcribing errors. And since this is my first pattern I made up all by myself, with the help of a lovely torn page out of a British Vogue, I welcome the corrections.




I will try my best to get re-acquainted with the instructions this weekend. In the meantime, let me warn any who approach this piece to Proceed Cautiously.

I think it is awesome that you even attempted to write a pattern for this amazing sweater! Your finished piece looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing all of your hard work with us!

I stumbled on your blog a few days ago and fell in love with the Knit In Chunks pattern. I hope to start it soon! Thanks.

Don't sweat it, you did a heroic job figuring out how do knit this lovely monster. The corrections are welcome, but the work to interpret it in the first place are even more welcome.
All's well.

It's beautiful! Mine did not turn out so nice. In an effort to make it slimmer, I didn't increase between the cables, and so it is heavy and straight. I love the drape on yours. I think I will have to re-knit on larger needles! annhb

What a gorgeous sweater! That may have to be my next sweater. I could wear it as a maternity sweater and it would look cute post-baby too! You did an awesome job!!

Your sweater is simply gorgeous!! It really looks couture. Thanks for posting your "chunks." Any word, tee hee, on when the last chunk will be posted? (Unless I missed seeing it.) We wait with anticipation! Merci!

I got brqve today and purchased wool for this beautiful cardigan. However, I cannot find the first part of the cable directions any more. Can anyone help or can they be posted again please?

Thanks,

Hi, it is Stephanie from Knewknits...I sent you an email, but I do not know if you got it, your pattern is good, I have the details, the words knit and purl are transposed in CB3-K1, how do I email you with a picture? I have tried twice to let you know about it, but I do not think I succeeded.

Mona Lisa again - I got lucky this morning and found the beginning of the Pringle sweater. It's raining today in Tucson, AZ so a perfect day to start knitting!

I wish to THANK Miss Twiss out of the bottom of my heart to figure out this complicated sweater/cardigan. I will attempt a Large size with 5 mm ndls. I will write down my instructions and eventually post them.

I took am smitten - but also being rather "fluffy" in the baby fat section, would need a much larger size. Once my cold-adled brain lets me, I'll sit and play with numbers, until then I will continue to drool over your lovely and amazing work!!

Hi there. I swatched for knit in chunks last night and so far it makes sense. I think someone's already pointed it out, but the instructions for C3B-K1 should be "Slip next 3 sts onto cable needle and hold at back of work; knit next stitch on left needle. Purl 3 stitches from cable needle."

On the yoke, the RS and WS labels are a bit confusing. I added an extra knit row between your row 1 and row 2 as written. Not sure it matters too much as long as you get that the yoke is reverse stocking stitch and the stitches are deliberately picked up on the wrong side so that the slipped stitch edge is showing, as a design feature. Is that what you intended? Anyway, I like knitting from 'recipes' rather than patterns. Thanks for doing this one.

Have I missed the instructions for the lower body or haven't you posted them yet?
