Errors on Pattern???
Oh Yikes! I'm working on the front of pattern http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/wi.../wisteria.html
Once again, this is my very first project, but I believe there are errors here. I emailed Berroco, but I'm not holding my breath. Wondering if I'm right and if anyone else out there knows how to get this right?
Then, doesn't this throw off the amount of rows I work over the decreases? I'm really worried that the back is going to be so off kilter from the front regarding armhole placement for this poncho type sweater.
I've completed the back, and and working the short rows on the front. I really hate to toss the project because of the pattern. Especially since it's the first one I've tried.
Since I've enjoyed so much amazing help out there to get me this far, I'm hoping someone can come thru again.
All my thanks,

Yeah, after looking at the pattern, I'm still confused. I wish I could help more!
Extensive explanation of pattern mess
Much thanks for your input.
Kind of bummed that the very first pattern I attempt had errors. Yikes.
Trying to eventually work 128 sts once all short rows have been completed.
Short rows: Establish Twiing Vine Pat:
Row 1 (RS):
K39, place marker, work Row 1 of Twining Vne Pat across next 50 sts, place marker, turn.
Row 2 (WS):
Work Row 2 of Twining Vine pat across center 50 sts, P4, turn.
Row 3 (RS):
K4 (This seems odd adding K4 at start of row and end),
Work Row 3 of Twining Vine pat aross 50 sts, K4, turn.
Continue in this manner with Twining Vine pat on on center 50 sts and working 4 sts more each row before turning 8 times in all....
Turning 8 times in all would look like this:
R1: K39, Vine Pat 50 sts, Turn (89 sts worked) turn 1
R2: K & P facing sts, P4, turn (93 sts worked)turn 2
R3: K4, Vine Pat 50 sts, K4, Turn (101 sts worked)turn 3
R4: K & P facing, P4, turn (105 sts worked)turn 4
R5: Vine Pat 50 sts, K4, Turn (109 sts worked)turn 5
R6: K & P, P4, Turn (113 sts worked)turn 6
R7: Vine Pat 50 sts, K4, Turn (117 sts worked)turn 7
R8: K & P, P4, Turn (121 sts worked)turn 8
Then 3 sts once,
R9: Vine Pat 50 sts, K3, Turn (124 sts worked)
and 2 sts twice until all 128 sts have been worked.
R10: K & P, P2, Turn (126 sts worked)
R11: Vine Pat 50 sts, K2, Turn. (128 sts worked)
Work 4 rows even in pat as established, end on WS.
Shape Raglan Armholes...
Big difference between starting arn holes on front and back:
Ribbing 21 rows 21 rows
Dec Row 1 row 1 row
Short Rows 21 rows 11 rows (per what I wrote above)
Work even 6 rows 4 rows
TOTAL 49 rows 37 rows
That's 12 rows difference before I start the raglan armholes. Seems the front and back will never match up.
I'm working a test piece for the short rows on junk yarn. Hey, I really need the practice anyway as I've onlly been knitting for about 3 weeks here. The bobbles and cable are easy now that they've been explained on the board so it looks really great.
Thank you again for taking the time to look at the pattern and investigate this with me. Ive yet to hear back from Berroco. I think I should put a notice on the other board here to see if anyone else has tried this sweater too. Just in case we can't figure it out. But I hope we can.
Thanks so much,
