Crocheted Aran-style Pullover

While exploring the idea of Aran-style garments that are crocheted rather than knitted, designer Kathy Merrick was struck by how often crocheted Aran-styles look lumpy, awkward, and rather uncomfortable. Figuring that the difficulties lie in using a heavyweight yarn and in trying to replicate knitted stitches that are not wildly attractive in crochet, she uses sportweight yarn, instead of worsted or Aran, and smaller-scale stitch patterns, not cables or heavy stitches.

All fine and dandy until...... Review by Megan

Everything worked up easy.....until I got to the arms. Then the pattern just makes no sense and is difficult to understand. I would rather have too many directions than short and confusing ones. Had to ask for help on it! Will be so glad when it's done. There are no other pictures except the one you see listed on the site. Well, there's one but it doesn't show me anything I need to see to make this work. I'm so frustrated.
