As I was watching the video, I keep hearing from the front loop, but as I watch, the work is all being done from the back loop... Which is correct please?
That's the front loop - the hdc part of the stitch creates a another horizontal loop across the stitch, so I can see how it looks that way, but it's really the front loop of the top V. 🙂
Beautiful cardigan!! I have lots of red heart with love can I follow the pattern or do I need to make any changes? Will make a beautiful Christmas present
I think that should work fine! Thank you so much!
For some reason I am decreasing two stiches every round of the sleeve. By round 14 I am already down to 40 stiches. What am I doing wrong?
It's hard to say without being there, but I recommend using stitch markers in the first and last st of each round - it really helps keep track so you don't miss one! That last st of each round really likes to hide!
Your instructions say for size S-L and in parentitites XL-5X, so does that mean that the 133 CSDC's are for the 5x? Then for a 2× what would it be. Sorry I am a beginner and don't understand this. I did the 133 and it looks very large! Help
Hi Mary! This pattern comes in two oversized sizes - the number before the parenthesis is for the size that runs Small to Large. The number inside the parenthesis is for the size that runs 1x to 5x. Does that help?
I was wondering if you have finished measurements between the two sizes of this cardigan? I am right on the line between sizes and this information would be so useful for me. I love this pattern! Very lovely design and I can't wait to get started!!!
Hi Judy! There are measurements on the schematic which is included in the written pattern. 🙂 And all sizing is based on the Industry standards of the Craft Yarn Council.
