I am knitting a sweater with a pattern found at the bottom of this page -- well I tried to put a URL here but it won't let me. Maybe if someone replies then I can put the pattern link in a response??
My question is this... I have followed the instructions for the body piece and am just about done with the front pieces, but when I look at the picture they have posted, it does not look like what I have made. The switch from a body piece that is done entirely in knit stitch to front pieces that are stockinette is pretty obvious to me, and also does not look like the picture.
Have I misunderstood the instructions or is the picture different from the pattern? I only used knit stitch for the first 8.7 inches of the body piece and what I have does not look like what they have... In other words, to your experienced eyes does the picture look like what you would get if you followed the instructions (specifically the line that says "Knit until the body piece is 8,7 inches." and then later "Keep on in stockinette until the body piece is 14,2 inches. Cast off loosely.") I am guessing I misunderstood and when it says "knit until the body piece is 8.7 inches" I was supposed to alternate knit, purl rows, right? Is this the normal way to indicate this?
