Thanks for answering,knitqueen!!! I'll write the pattern down for you. I have casted on 95 stitches, and worked in knit 1 purl 1 to form the collar.Then, you increase evenly across the collar to have 102 stitches. They then ask you to make a "marking row" where you mark where the sleeve will be at the front and back of each shoulder. So, I have 4 marked stitches in total.
Here I will be quoting the pattern. First it says"(Knit to next marked st. M1. Knit marked st. M1) 4 times "then work panel pat , then "Keeping cont of panel pat, inc 8 sts evenly around next and following 36 alt rows as before. 406 sts" Panel pat is a cable design going down the front edge of the sweater. I have no problem with that. the problem is with not getting enough stitches on the needle a the end of the 36 rows. Mysweater looks great, with a nice seam running diagonally down the front and back of my shoulder. It's too awkward to tell if it would actually fit me. If you wanted to see a picture of the sweater, its a Patons Upside -Downers booklet, and I did see it on line by typing in "Upside Downers", I think under "patterns". If you need more info, let me know.
:shrug: Thanks so much!!!
