Ugh! Review by Georganna

This pattern is awful. So far I have been unable to use it beyond the ribbing. I am a very experienced knitter ( over 40 years of experience) but I still have not conquered this pattern. I have the magazine and even bought the pattern. I've printed the pattern, enlarged it, cut it apart recharted it and even tried to set it up in KnitCompanion. Still every time I pick up the project I end up frustrated. This pattern should be at least twice as long to explain the body pattern. I understand it was in a magazine and space is an issue, but then don't charge me $5.50 for the same unusable pattern. I AM going to make this sweater if it takes a year, but I definitely do not recommend it to anyone at less than expert level skills.
