I can't find the pattern on the internet. I'm not even sure what magazine its out of. This is what it says:
With right side facing you, using circular needle and starting from the lower right front edge, pick up and k 82 sts along right front edge to start of neck shaping. 145sts around neck to start of left front neck shaping and 82sts along left front edge (309sts). k the next row. k1,p1 in ribbing for 5 rows
then it goes on about the buttonholes.
To me it sound like a lot of sts. THe cardigan is almost a V neck, so im just worried that altering the number of sts will alter the look of the neck.
