- Big problem lazulum shell Review by Roberta
Currently knitting. The diagonal side parts are not sized correctly according to gauge. The side of the part is on the diagonal, the width of the piece size 41.5 is supposed to be 5.25 inches wide but is much too wide. I had to go with 37 stitches cast on instead of 45 and adjust the inc dec intervals to make the piece the width and length specified. The back piece, which is not knit on diagonal appears to be correctly written. I assume the front diagonal knit pieces will also need adjustments. I will comment back when I am done.
It's as if the designer wrote it right but the editors corrected without noting the difference that knitting Lon diagonal makes.
The gauge states the same for bith knit and diagonal knit!

- First impression Review by Debbie
This is my first issue so this is only my first impression. The pictures are great and the instructions look complete except for the Mallory Hills Shawlette which is the pattern I wanted! This pattern is only graphed and without full instructions for the key. This issue would be great if you are looking for summer sweaters. The magazine would be easier to read and use if the patterns were organized so that each page(s) were a pattern. I would prefer an electronic version so as to easily enlarge and print charts.
