I would totally wear this sweater! It's so hipster chic. With a vintage floor to it. The design tows the line between that 70's granny sweater and something a hip 20-something might wear and I love it! I have to save this to my projects and spend a nice couple of weeks working on this for next year!

I would like to do this pattern in one color. After row 8, I'm not sure where to continue.

Hi Taylors, That depends on what size you're making! After row 8, if you're making sizes XL or 2X, follow the headers for those rows (adding on a 9th and maybe a 10th row). For Smaller sizes, you just stop after row 8 and then move on to Begin Pattern Stitch. Julia, AFC editor

Wow. This Vintage Striped Jacket is so beautiful!! I'm currently doing a few projects and it seems like I wanna temporarily drop all of them to start this one. It is indeed so lovely! The colors are just so appropriate for the fall season and can be worn until winter to make that season alive and bright. This is a work of someone who's got class and good taste.

A question about the Vintage Striped Jacket When the pattern says to "work" a part of a row, if no stitch is named, do they intend for you to sc? i.e.., Divide For Body And Sleeves Row 1 Keeping in Pattern st and E, work 24 (26, 28, 32, 38) sts for Front, skip next 36 (38, 40, 46, 48) sts for Sleeve, work across next 52 (54, 56, 66, 82) sts for Back, skip next 36 (38, 40, 46, 48) sts for Sleeve, work to end of row 100 (106, 112, 130, 158) sts for Body." I am considering Facing the Fear and trying my first Intermediate pattern. Don't want to invest in all that yarn if I don't fully understand the pattern. TY

The part of the pattern that is headed Begin Pattern Stitch is where you learn to make the pattern stitch So when you get to the part that says keeping in pattern stitch you continue on with the pattern stitch that you've learned to make Just start at the beginning of the pattern and read it all all the directions and stitch patterns and abbreviations used sizes and yarns it's all there Then pick up your hook and yarn start at the very beginning and make each stich as you follow the pattern You can do it As long as there isn't a mistake in the pattern you can do it Also if you do a stitch wrong it doesn't really matter Just do every one of them wrong so your finished item looks the same throughout It won't look exactly like it was meant to but no one will know…Read More and it will look great anyway

Love this site....easy to navigate. How do you save information from the comment list. I see someone had a problem with a pattern and another person provided an answer for the pattern.

Those having trouble printing. Go to the bar under the pattern title where all the little icons for facebook etc are. All the way to the right is the letter P. Scroll over it and options including print will appear.

Why would a site give us a pattern with no print button?

Do anyone know what this mean? ch3 turn dc in same space, [ skip 2dc, 2dc in space between last skipped dc and next dc] across to last sts, skip 2 dc in space before beginning ch. It to begin Pattern Stitch.
Sep 10, 2012
sugarwalls, I'm not an expert but, maybe I can explain this if I break it down into bite size pieces. ch3 turn dc in same space= when you do this row you will chain 3 and turn your work around and make a double crochet in the same place that you made the chain 3. [skip 2dc, 2dc in space between last skipped dc and next dc]= you will skip the 2 double crochet stitches from the previous row and in the space before the next double crochet you will make 2 double crochet. you will repeat this pattern across that row. skip 2dc in space before beginning ch.=you will skip the last 2 double crochet stitches of the previous row then make the chain stitches to begin the next row. I hope I was able to explain it well

HELP! I don't understand this part "Divide For Body And Sleeves Row 1 Keeping in Pattern st and E, work 24 (26, 28, 32, 38) sts for Front, skip next 36 (38, 40, 46, 48) sts for Sleeve, work across next 52 (54, 56, 66, 82) sts for Back, skip next 36 (38, 40, 46, 48) sts for Sleeve, work to end of row 100 (106, 112, 130, 158) sts for Body. " Is one side of the front significantly larger than the other? ie, the one front side is 24 st and the other is 100 to the end of the row? Is the 100 st for the Body? I have so many more st. in total than that. I hope someone at Red Heart steps up and helps solve this problem for me.

It is not 100 to the end of the row. It is 100 total for body... 24 for the first front, plus 52 for the back, plus 24 for the second front, after having skipped the stitches where the sleeves will go.
