Been asked this question a couple of times and after spending the whole darn day trying to figure a pattern, i have retyped it in a more user-friendly manner. Why, well not all of us are “chart enabled”
I went onto Ravelry and I read up on the pattern and all the comments with regards to errors etc and i have taken them into account. Well i hope so. Emailed some folks who already made it – for their tips on making the pattern.
Well i am off to see what yarn i have and then i will get started. I saw this pattern +- 3 yrs ago and wanted to do it then but i was put off by all the complaints etc As its a topdown vintage inspired set, i am opting to start with the 0-3 mnths size as nearly all are saying that it knits up very big and that is one of the downside to this pattern. So thank you to all for moaning and groaning about this pattern in the past and i will now enjoy, hopefully, in knitting it up hassle-free.
Hardly done any knitting today as i was not feeling to good. But the yoke is done and i have repeated the chart once and it seems like its working out. Next is dividing the stitches and then the sleeves..
okay so i am nearly finished with the first sleeve and well, i have triple checked the chart – asked those that did this to confirm – but the pattern still does not look the same….
The cardigan that i am doing is the Lucille and can be found here. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lucille-3

Frogged, knitted, frogged, knitted and now frogged again. The pattern is just not working out for me 😦
Thinking of doing the rest in garter stitch just so that i can get this wool used up. But i am very disappointed…
