  4. I have now about 10 patterns, but be honest I can not get finish my little baby raglan cardigan yet, which is start from the bottom and the front, back is one piece. The sleeves post to be separate and the body (yoke) is not enough detailed for a beginner knitter. If somebody never had knitted raglan cardigan, it should be available a very detailed write by really knitting pattern. I bought two patterns none of them made for me to understand what to do at the sleeve and the yoke what to do to get the nice line at the top.? I find one day on the Internet one pattern which is okey, but it's not the original pattern. Because of that I could not follow the pattern again. I find at Craftsy web site the original writer - Debbie Bliss book, which is very detailed for beginners so I want to buy it, but they told me its very difficult to find it nowadays and she'll call me back. It never happened. I went back to the website and I find almost the some cardigan, but different color and bigger size, but that book does not say very detailed for begginer knitting. So I'm very diappointed. If somebody would help me, it would be great! Thanks! PS: I would like to know how much is this patter also?

  8. Oh, for cryin' out loud. Love this pattern, but I can't get past row 7. I start row 7 with 23 stitches, but at the end of the row, I've lost 3 stitches somewhere. I'm confident I'm doing to the YO correctly (counter clockwise from back to front, just before the next knit), but god bless me, I can't figure it out.

  10. Hello,

    Love the blog!

    I am new to knitting and I require some help with your pattern.

    I am struggling with the following section:

    29th Row: S1, knit 14sts, cast off 4sts, knit 25sts, cast off 4sts, k14sts

    Next Row: S1, k3, p11, purl across 19sts from the first sleeve, purl 26sts from the back, purl 19sts from the second sleeve, purl 11sts from left front, k4 (94sts)

    According to your pattern:

    Row 29 is 62 sitches minus 8 for casting off = 54 sitches

    Row 30 is 94 sitches

    What is the pattern to increase to 20 sitches to get to Row 30 (94 sitches)

    Finally, how do I attatch the sleeves?

    Please can you help?

    Thanks :)
