Unfortunately I made that up and didn't write down what I was doing while I was doing it. I started with a mystery yarn of unknown origin, so I figured it would take too much work to figure out how much yarn the pattern would call for. :roflhard:
I do heartily recommend a book called "The Yarn Girls Guide to Simple Knits." All of the patterns are with chunky yarn and very simple...you might want to check your library to see if they have it!
(BTW, the zipper was the skeeeriest part. The sweater sat, knitting finished, for several weeks before I got up the courage to sew it in. :rollseyes: )
