Hi everyone! There was quite a bit of interest in the cardigan I was knitting last night and some requests to post my write-up of knitting it in the round and the stitch glossary I typed up. So here is the pattern write-up. If anyone wants the Word attachments just let me know and I'll email it to you as I have no idea how to do an attachment on meetup.

Here's the original pattern link: http://www.ravelry.co...­

Here's the pattern that I wrote up to do the body in one piece:

Aidez
These instructions are written so that you can knit the body of the cardigan in one piece. Where I have placed a blank is where you can write in the number of sts indicated for the size you are knitting. I used a US 10.5-32” needle for this and my gauge was almost perfect…maybe a cm or two off. I also used different colored place markers (PM) at the end of the panels to designate the ‘Right, Back & Left’ panels. This will come in handy when decreasing. I also slipped the first st of each row purlwise…this is not necessary but I personally prefer how this looks. As of writing this I am about 2/3 of the way done with the body and using these instructions has worked out well so far. I am going to attempt to knit the sleeves in the round and if it works out will write those up as well but as of now I did not write instructions for the sleeves…please follow original instructions for those. I believe, on Ravelry, there is a link under one of the finished projects with instructions on knitting the sleeves in the round and if I find that again I will post separately. Please let me know if you find any errors 

~Start: CO _______ sts.

~Ribbing Row 1 (RS): k1, *p1,k1, rep from * across

~Ribbing Row 2: p1, *k1, p1, rep from * across. Rep these rows until piece measures 3” from beg, end on RS. Knit next row increasing one st at end of Left , Back , Right panels sections (total of 3 sts) on WS ending with _______ sts. **i.e. if starting CO is 149 sts, after the increase you will have a total of 152 sts.

Note: On the 'Right Front Panel Raglan Armhole Shaping' the Bind Off's are to be done at the beg of the Wrong Side (WS) but the Decrease rows are done on the Right Side (RS) as written above. I really wish the designer of this pattern had taken the time and written out the Right Front shaping as it's kind of confusing at first. But, as of today, I have done both the Right and Left Raglan Armhole shaping and it has worked out great...a few curse words but overall was fun to do. Now onto the back panel shaping. Happy knitting :)

I have modified Carrie's modifications even more for those who need more scaffolding on this project. (I needed it!) Feel free to email me and I will send it along. I also made the stitch glossary so that the patterns and the corresponding codes for the stitches are matched up to one another.
