  1. This sweater is so amazing in so many ways. It looks like it would flatter many different body shapes. I can’t wait until I receive a copy of this book so I can make one. You really knocked it out of the park.


  2. I love this pattern, but I needed to find a yarn substitution. For some reason, I just couldn’t get the row count reasonably close, although my stitch count was okay. As a result, the armhole was about 8 inches too big, and I’ve now got a dress! I just don’t understand why the row count is off, when usually I don’t have gauge problems. Any suggestions you might have would be appreciated, because I’d like to try the pattern again.


    • Yarn substitutions can be rough. Especially after blocking because different yarns can react so different. Some stretch out a great deal while others do not. The full right to Harley are now owned by Knit Picks, so they provide all pattern support. If you need to substitute a wool yarn for another fiber, they may be able to suggest one. Hope this helps!


  3. I understand that knit stitches are slightly longer than they are wide, but the gauge didn’t make sense to me at all. But thanks for your response; maybe I will try Knitpicks–I’ve purchased enough of their eBooks!
