A word of warning
I just completed a sweater I saw knitted onknitty gritty, by Stefanie Japel. My sweater looked nothing like the one on tv. After careful studying I noticed on the body pattern #8 was left off which is a Purl row which threw off the whole look. ANyway I'll try again and hope all is well

I would also like to know the name of the episode and/or sweater.

Update:
Just found it. That was the episode that was on a couple of days named "The better sweater". When you say #8 do you mean the 8th row of the body? If that's it then it's purled like the rest of the even rows.

I'm going to try that very soon
Thanks!!

Yes it is the Better Sweater and the mistake is in the body. They should have printed #8 purl as the last row of the body. I knitted it with just ending row 7 and its horrible!! Oh well live and learn
But it is a nice sweater

Thanks, Marilyn! Turns out that's not a style I like or look good in anyway.
