    • TO Myra: I too am having difficulty translating pattern and have sent a second email to them. I was wondering if you ever received a reply to your comment and, if so, did they send you an easier explanation of the instructions. If they did, where did they send you? I am anxious to start knitting this sweater as it is one of the prettiest I have seen in a long time.

  1. I have the pattern for Jessica Los women’s short sleeve sweater, I have also bought the yarn and have received same, I have a question regarding instruction 5 on the “How to knit front piece of short sleeve sweater.” It reads Decrease 3+3+2+1+1+1+1+1 stitches on every front row at neck side. Please explain how this instruction is done.

  2. I previously sent an email asking for the english version of what Row 5 was when working on the front piece and have never heard back. I have received the yarn and reviewed the pattern again and would really appreciate a clearer and easier reading of your instructions. Also your chart does not give a legend/key. Please help so I may begin knitting this beautiful sweater. Thank you

  3. I believe the chart is for the 6 st cable. You twist it on the 3×3 rows and knit others.
    I also think row 5 is when you dec each side of neck after the first 20 st dec, for 8 rows, probably on alternate rows. Think about other patterns you have done.

  4. Thank you Diane for your reply to my inquiry as to the chart for the 6 st cable as well as your reply to Row 5. I do not get on the computer often (hardly at all) and just saw your response to my inquiries. NOw that I have read the instructions for the 100th time, am I understanding that there are a total of 8 decreases on each side of the neck edge when knitting the right side row? In other words, I would dec 3 sts on each neck edge the first row and dec another 3 sts on each neck edge on the next right side row, then 2 sts then 1 st on each side 5 times?

  5. As a person who is trying to learn knitting garments, this a VERY confusing pattern. Some of the help above is useful, but I still am not sure about the initial moss stitch instruction about yo and then dropping that…why not just K1P1 and then on the next row do the opposite? Maybe there is a reason I don’t understand but I love the look of this sweater (though needs lengthened for for the longer body I have–22″ is like a mid drift shirt on me, 30 is more like it I think.
